Yokohama Minato-mirai / Museum
Open museum 10am-6pm (enter by 5pm); mall -7pm; restaurant -8pm (LO 7pm) daily.
Museum admission Y1000 (for everyone over 1 year old); free admission to the mall
Average visit time: 20-90 minutes

Aimed squarely at the six-and-under crowd, this popular mini-museum and shopping mall are devoted to the cartoon-pastry hero and his many plush and collectible friends. The main reason to fork over Y1000 for the museum entrance fee is probably the live-action theater area; the rest of the mall is free. In addition to all the character-themed goods you could possibly imagine, the mall features a cafe-bakery serving character-themed baked goods, a full-fledged restaurant and a hair salon.





Nishi-ku, Yokohama, Minato-Mirai 4-3-1.
