The Yokohama Doll Museum first opened in March, 1979. Earlier in September 1978, a very large collection of dolls belonging to Hideko Oono was donated to the city of Yokohama. As a result, The Yokohama Doll Museum was established in June 1986.
You can always enjoy yourself and find something new at the Yokohama Doll Museum. Make your own discoveries as you cruise through the exhibition halls. The dolls beckon you to learn about the histories and stories behind them.
We exhibit dolls which come from over a hundred countries including ethnic dolls and Japanese traditional dolls crafted by artists revered as Living National Treasure in Japan.
