[The longest museum in Japan, the largest museum]
The longest-running museum in Japan, the largest museum in Otaru, is about 5 minutes walk from the South Otaru Station. Remember: It is not a small station, and the station is going further.
There is a steam clock at the entrance of the museum, which will be called on time. But the most attractive thing is the store's dazzling music box. This is probably the most and most beautiful music box I have ever seen.
There are angels, cats, crystal balls, and a music box with a glass shape, and the music is different. I really want to take them all home!

The most eye-catching fairytale intersection is the three-storey Western building in Letao, which is the tall steam clock at the entrance of the music box. As time goes by, this antique clock can still spurt water vapors along with the music.
Push the heavy wooden door and walk into the music box wind tunnel. The interior is full of lights, and the interior of the log-style building is filled with exquisite music boxes. On the first floor, the music box is made of ceramic, wood, glass, etc. The music box made of different materials forms a music box theme museum.
Go to the second floor, all shown here are Japanese-made high-grade music boxes. The shape design is not lively and cute, but these seemingly cumbersome music boxes are very advanced. The music box movement is divided into 8 tones, 12 tones, 15 tones, 16 tones, 18 tones, 20 tones, 22 tones, 27 tones, etc., up to 156 tones. The more the number of combs on the soundboard, the more the number of sounds, the more full the sound will be, and the more the songs and spins will be. The more advanced music box, which has been separated from the scope of tourist souvenirs, can become a treasure of collectible value. In the Middle Ages, the music box only existed in the life of the nobility, and the wonderful story woven by the wonderful music was only enjoyed by a few people.
The Otaru Music Box Hall was built in the 45th year of Meiji and is one of the few old buildings in Hokkaido. There is a two-story steam clock at the door, made of bronze by famous Canadian watchmakers, and steam is sprinkled with wonderful music every 15 minutes. The interior of the
octave box is made of wood, and the thick floor is stepped on to make a squeaking sound, accompanied by a dark light, revealing a heavy sense of history. The beautiful melodies that come out of the music box are everywhere, which is really a romantic dream.
Standing on the 2nd floor, you can see the scene inside the entire exhibition hall. It is also very beautiful. If you go early in the morning, you can see that there is no one.
Music Box Museum Otaru - Japan: A beautiful museum with plenty of music boxes that we can also purchase. The structure and decoration of this place is so nice and look so old. This is also a must place to visit in Otaru. #merrychristmas
Converted from Hokkaido's office for rice and grain trade, Otaru Music Box Museum exudes a certain European feel. With outer walls comprised of meticulously arranged dark red bricks, and a beech wood interior, the old stairs, corridors, and railings of the hall complement each other beautifully. In addition to viewing the variety of music boxes inside, visitors can also head to the third floor and try their hand at making a music box themselves.
