Be a princess for a day - Kawaguchi-ko Music Forest Musem

Three princesses sit - it seems like a portrait

Roads? Where we're going we don't need... roads!

Does someone get the reference?

Today we will travel with our time machine, traveling to the past and back to the future to understand the tough life of a princess.



1. Europe with Mt.Fuji

2. Tour Eiffel in Yamanashi

4. Information of where I visited


Europe with Mt. Fuji!?

Our first stop is in Europe!

Oh, wait sorry our time machine takes us to Kawaguchi-ko music forest museum, one of a kind musical them park, designed with a “European Alps” atmosphere standing beneath a superb view of Mt. Fuji.

With the price of admission, you can also enjoy various musical experiences throughout the day.

Our "princess transformation" begins the entrance, where we have to choose the dress from the different styles, colors, size and price (price range is from 1000yen to 3000yen and children 500yen for 90 minutes.).

A lot of spots where you can take a lot of photos

It is a fun experience stroll like medieval princesses, take photos, discover this musical park and try to play some instruments.

Kawaguchi-ko music forest museum holds a world-class collection of automatic musical instruments, including the world's largest "dance organ and doll orchestra" and the Philharmonic Performance Orchestrion designed for the Titanic.

you can play music and listen to carillons

After photo shootings and some shopping, you can refresh at the restaurant / café inside the park while enjoying the view of Mt. Fuji or you can watch the automated conductor doll appears from the "Carillon" chime clock tower in musical unison with the spraying fountain in the gardens pond.

We had no time to see it cause our coach, like Cinderella story, was ready to take us to another place.

Like Cinderella, we are ready to go!

Tour Eiffel in Yamanashi!?

Time travelers next stop is Paris!


It is not Paris? But it seems a french café near the Tour Eiffel.

Café Brioche near the little Tour Eiffel

Ok Ok, we are not in Paris, we are at Fujikyu-Highland an amusement park in Fujiyoshida, Yamanashi, Japan.

The theme park is near the base of Mt. Fuji.

It has many roller coasters, as well as two haunted attractions, we will tell you about our adventures here in a future post.

We want to finish our beautiful and funny "Time traveler princess that eat a lot Day" in this bakery with a Parisian atmosphere in Lisa and Gaspard Town.

It a god set for your Instagram photo and also a good place to try delicious-cute food.

A super cute sweet break

We tried the recommended sweets in the boulangerie: Fuji-chan, bread with cream filling, and a brioche with on top of the two characters Lisa&Gaspard.

A relaxing atmosphere where you can enjoy the view of the Tour Eiffel and at the same time prepare yourself for the adrenaline adventures in the park.

But this is another story, check out our Instagram and post in our blog to discover what happened or will happen (we are still in medieval time or the present?).
