A small museum with a couple of room-reproductions of historic Japanese life. Based on the exhibits alone, this tiny museum probably won't be all that amazing but what really makes this place interesting is the free guided tour given by volunteers. This guided tour breathes life into the exhibits and brings more understanding to some of the things you may see on your travels around Japan. Included in the museum tour, they showed us how the fortunes / "O-mikuji" system works in the temples or shrines, and we got our own fortunes read which was fun!
If you're lucky you'll get a knowledgable volunteer guide who can answer most questions you may have about Japanese culture, traditions, religion and history - which was great! Be sure to *ask* for the guided tour when you buy tickets because I don't think they always offer it unless you specifically ask for it.
Look out for the little rack of traditional robes that you can put on for photos :)
