In addition to its well-known museums - the national museums, the large municipal museum, and many smaller galleries - the city also has many smaller, narrow focus places by the dozen.
One is the Kyoto Kaleidoscope Museum.
It is housed in a former school and a fun afternoon out.
For cyclists, parking is always available on the street in front of the museum. On the odd chance that this is full - it won't be - public parking can be found on Oike Dori, just north of the Museum.
