This museum opened as a comprehensive archive on the culture of Kyoto confectionaries. Introducing replicas of togashi, or Chinese pastries, and ancient texts and materials, the museum tells the story of wagashi, or Japanese sweets, in an easy-to-understand manner. Also, this is one of the few places in Japan where a permanent exhibition of togeigashi, or sugar decorations, can be seen.
The museum toilet is a universal one designed to be used by anyone, so wheelchair users can tour the museum comfortably. (Month checked: 2018.Dec, )
