What people are saying:

I visited the Chinese Characters Museum and saw the authenticity of this year’s Chinese characters. The Chinese character wall of 50,000 Chinese characters is really spectacular... It is really happy to find my name in the Chinese character wall. Finally, I made a chemical transformation with my body. 】Stay in the museum PS: In the last picture, I don’t understand what these three words mean when they are all capitalized together. I really don’t know if the people in Japan are too dirty or I am too dirty...

    Didn't feel welcome ...

    We didn't actually enter this museum. At the entrance we were warned by the staff that there were no English explanations for anything. Entry was 800Y pp and there was an English audio guide available...

    While the displays have no English translations, they offer an audio guide for 500¥, which is less than $5 USD. (Admission is 800¥ for adults.) There are a few hands-on activities to go with the displ...
