Very good private collection of Japanese dolls. Here you can find all varieties, from all over the country. Even Russian Matryoshka dolls is presented! Recommend to visit. Super friendly.

Very disappointed as we were there today but the doors were closed even though Google maps says they are open til 5pm!! Was looking forward to have our children see this museum on our last day in Kanazawa! Best to check with them before going!

Staff is super friendly and competent in English. The museum is wonderfully organized and displayed, and you can tell that the owner really has a passion for dolls and history. Their collection is fantastic. Definitely take the chance to walk through with one of the guides, they have fascinating info to share. Loved my visit!

The staff is nice and friendly, they have guided tours where you get to see fantastic collection of beautiful Japanese dolls and a good overview of the history. Fell in love with with a huge amazing collection of Matryoshka, especially 30 fairytales ones! Definitely go to this! P.S. we visited right after the emergency status was lifted, so no tourists at all (we are living in Tokyo). We had a Japanese guided tour, but they also have English tours during the normal operation time.

LOVED IT! The staff is extremely nice and friendly, they have English guided tours where you get to see many many dolls, all with their own stories! (Serika was our guide and she was so prepared and nice, she answered all the questions we had, and was just so sweet!) It was really interesting and it improved my understanding of the Japanese culture and history, I would suggest to go visit it if you’re in Kanazawa!
