The owner spent two hours with us telling us about the history and fabric of his collection, allowing us to play (at least attempt to). Incredibly interesting and our host was very knowledgeable, funny and accommodating. Couldn’t recommend more!

こんなに沢山の弦楽器がこの世にあっただなんて驚きです。またそれぞれの楽器のルーツを丁寧に説明下さり、とても興味深かったです。これからもコレクションは増えていくと仰っていたので、数年後に再訪したいです。 I have never imagined that there are such many type of guitars in the world! The owner explained each historical and cultural ground in details and it was quite interesting. I want to visit again within a few years to see the additional collection!
