The Japanese Rural Toy Museum is located in a repurposed rice kura (storehouse) in the popular town-walking destination Kurashiki Bikan Historical Quarter. The museum features about 5,000 toys made in various parts of Japan from the 1600s to the 1980s. Featured in the Lonely Planet travel guidebook, the Japanese Rural Toy Museum is a popular destination for tourists from overseas. With its wide selection of Japanese goods in the museum shop and gallery, as well as a cafe, the museum is a perfect destination for buying souvenirs or just as a rest stop for those out strolling the town.
