In Hamamatsu City, there is not only a lot of good food and drinks, but there is also a lot of exceptional music! With Kawai, Yamaha and Rolland all established in that city, more than half of all music instruments in Japan are made there! It was no wonder that the city decided to open a museum when it erected Act City and other buildings within walking distance of the railway station 18 years ago!
The city then proceeded to amass a mind-boggling collection of more 1200 pieces on constant display out of more than 3000 in their vaults. The collection truly covers the whole world and the entrance fee of 400 yen (for adults) is truly ridiculous. Next time you travel or go out in Hamamatsu City, take some time to immerse yourself in the biggest public musical instruments collection in the world. The more for it when you realize that photography is allowed.
