Main reason we went was because my wife wanted to make perfume. It cost ¥3650 before tax so a bit pricy and the older lady working there was a little pushy apparently you can have to wait for over an hour sometimes. Luckily we didn’t have to wait and we filled out a questionnaire and had our perfume made and we don’t regret the decision at all. The older lady really knows her stuff. What’s great is that they keep a record of your perfume for 5 years, so you can buy it whenever you like and the shipping is free inside Japan. The entrance fee was ¥700 and the exhibits were lovely. Has a store inside too selling all kinds of Holland related goods.

I came to visit this place during the winter break holiday. I came here because I got the opportunity to use my Happy Memory Pass from Kobe, so that I can enter this place for free. Before entering, we have to change the shoes with special slippers provided. At the inside, you can observe the classic Netherland-styled house and make a perfume by yourself. Also, they provided with some souvenirs to buy also.

We planned to go here after our tour at the Herb Garden, but because it rained in Kobe April 14, 2019, we had to cancel this tour.

Nothing special. Just an old house that has a strong perfume smell.
