This small annex exhibits Edo- and Meiji-era karakuri ningyō (marionettes). On Saturdays and Sundays at 10.30am and 2pm, you can see the wooden characters in action. On Fridays and Saturdays between 10am and 4pm, there are demonstrations of how the puppets are made by artisan Tamaya Shobei the 9th, who is the only living karakuri ningyō Master from an unbroken lineage.
