An amazing replica of the real buildings. Took them longer to build the replicas than the original building. Really amazing craftsmanship. Such delicate work. I now need to visit the real temple site.

It took thirty three master carpenters fifteen years to skillfully replicate the buildings of the first general of the Tokugawa shogunate. The detail work attests to the great craftsmanship of the carpenters who recreated this one tenth scale replica of a five storied Pagoda, worship...More

Our tour visited this exhibit after touring the Float Exhibit Hall. The miniatures are exquisitely detailed. For those who are familiar with model trains, they were about HO gauge. I wish we could have spent more time here.

The models are all beautifully made and as we were going to visit Nikko later on our trip it was very interesting to see these models. Having seen the real thing they are exceptionally well made and very good copies.

As mentioned before, this is free if you bought a float admission. Amazing amount of work and detail went into this. Should take less than 1 hr to go thru... built from 1912 to 1956.

These 1/10th size models are so detailed and beautiful to see. It is hard to move from one model to the next because the details of the actual buildings are so exact

As mentioned by others, admission to this museum is included in the ticket to the Float Museum. Do not miss this place if you go to the Float Museum. The models are well done.

Sakurayama Nikkokan gets second billing to the Festival Floats Exhibition Hall, though they can both be visited on the same ticket. It turns out that the former is far superior to the latter (something like the opening singer or band being better than the one...More

The detail was amazing and the fact we had actually visited the temple ourselves on our previous visit to Japan made it that much more enjoyable.

Amazingly detailed models of real temples & shrines, very intricate detail. Over a hundred of them I would estimate. Situated next door to the Floats Museum & included in the ticket price. Worth a look, it took a lot of craftsmen many years to make...More
