Special Time "Karakuri Dolls"


During the special feature time, we will take up mechanical instruments that cannot be introduced at concerts, and sometimes we will jump out of the concert room and show you around the Mori no Oto Hall.

It is a compact feature that you can easily enjoy for about 10 minutes, but it is also recommended for those who want to know more about mechanical instruments after listening to a concert.

Also, during this time, you can freely take pictures and videos of performances and demonstrations, so it is perfect for making memories.

During this period, we will focus on Western-made automatic dolls "Automata" and Japanese-made "Edo Karakuri".
