Choose from a selection of 400 songs and experience creating your very own music box, a staple souvenir from Otaru
Kaimeiro is a music box store located along Sakaimachi-dori in Otaru, a street lined with souvenir stores and confectionery shops. The store itself is found inside the remodeled former Otaru Branch of the Dai-Hyakujusan National Bank, which was originally built in 1983. Inside you will find a huge selection of music boxes crowded together. Kaimeiro creates its very own music cylinders, so you can find a selection of hard-to-find songs or even order your very own custom-made music box with your favorite song. You can also experience selecting a unique box and decorations to accompany your chosen song, and create your very own music box through the store’s hands-on class. With slight adjustments, you can transform the store’s existing music box into your very own keepsake. There is also an attached cafe, so you can enjoy tea time while watching your kids work on their creations.
