Additional Information


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.
