Bringing The Toys To Life, Kawaguchi-ko

There are a handful of museums that dot Kawaguchi-ko and one of the more interesting and quirky places is a toy museum. It's a private collection, a display of the passion of one person who never stopped amassing toys. A mother's nightmare.

One impressive display was a nice collection of old metal diorama-like toys that ran through some sort of mechanical action. Flying saucers, galloping horses, happy folks moving about, over and over.

With apologies again to David Leventhal in bringing these toys to life. Here's a patient mermaid, stuck listening to a droning diver.

A farmer with his loving lass. A galloping patriot.

A happy couple, motoring after their wedding day.
