Junior Audioguide

The Kyoto National Museum now features multilingual audioguides for young people in addition to those for the general public. The Junior Audioguide features two characters, Grandpa Meta (named after the giant Metasequoia tree in the museum garden) and Wakaba-chan ("Little New Leaf"), who talk lightheartedly about objects on view in the museum. We hope these guides make your next museum visit fun and informative for the whole family.
