If you love Teddy Bears, you'll love this

It seems to me that we were in a Teddy Bear Museum like this in Basel, so it wasn't an entirely new experience, but if you like Teddys, you'll love this.

For anyone who owns teddy bears or have soft toys for companion, they would definitely love this place! I managed to find out that they are hosting a limited period of Totoro exhibition by chance and they are adorable to watch! They have shop and cafe. Their cafe is a very nice place to chill with very delicious high tea... More

It is a small museum but has quite a few collections. Just 5 minutes walk from Izukogen station. The teddy's garden is beautiful.

Yep, teddy bears. Go for it. Then, the cafe! Seriously, the Japanese haven't quite got the hang of coffee and sweeties yet, but this place for some reason has! Ina big way. I could swear the coffee was single origin and was made sooooo well. The sweeties were so fresh, they must have been made on site and were delicious.... More

A maiden experience to Izu Teddy Bear Museum for me, a teddy bear fan. There were so many exhibits that you could easily spend half a day going through each one of them. On the 2nd floor, exhibits like Totoro and other famous characters in Hayao Miyazaki's film will keep one captivated at this place. I find this better than... More

A little surreal to see all those Teddy Bears in one place in action but a very interesting collection.

We were unable to get the tickets for the actual Studio Ghibili Museum hence this is a great opportunity for us to check out our favorite character from Studio Ghibili. The ground level is where all the teddy bears are display while the special exhibitions is located on the second floor. We got to take photos in the cat bus... More

We did not plan to visit the Izu Teddy Bear Museum intially, since we were not big fan of teddy bears. However, as I personally a fan of 'Totoro" and have seen an advertisement the museum has a Part 2 depicting different characters from the cartoon - we decided to make a trip there. We were so glad we went.... More

If you love Teddy Bears and cartoons produced by Studio Ghibli, you must visit this museum! There is a special exhibition of ネコバス(cat bus) from the movie Totoro. The cat bus in Ghibli Museum is only available for kids under 12 but the cat bus here is open to EVERYONE. We had a blast taking pictures with the Teddy Bears... More
