The Karakuri Exhibition Room in Inuyama is just across the street from the Inuyama Artifacts Museum on the approach road to Inuyama Castle. Visitors can enter all three places on the same 600 yen ticket.
The Karakuri Exhibition Room is dedicated to Karakuri - mechanical puppets, automatons or proto-robots if you like, that are part of the annual Inuyama Festival held on the first week of April.
Visitors can operate some puppets, watch demonstrations by a puppet master operating and making puppets and look at the collection of amazing Japanese puppets on display.
The Karakuri Exhibition Room is a short stroll from either Inuyama Station or Inuyama-Yuen Station.
