Categories: Historic Sites, Landmarks, Tourist Spots
Under the arresting gaze of Mt. Fuji sits the traditional village of Saiko Iyashi no Sato Nemba. Once the site of some of the finest thatched buildings in the country, it was unfortunately destroyed by landslide during a 1966 typhoon. Now, 20 reconstructed buildings make up an open-air museum, giving you a chance to explore and experience the village as it once stood. Stop for a moment in the museum on erosion and sediment control, where you'll learn about the disaster of the 60s and the measures taken to prevent such a fate recurring. Afterwards, explore shops and restaurants showing off traditional artisan goods and cuisines. Look out for opportunities to try your hand at some of the craft workshops, and consider a photoshoot in traditional dress, available to rent here. Make Saiko Iyashi no Sato Nemba a part of your Fujikawaguchiko-machi vacation plans using our Fujikawaguchiko-machi travel itinerary planner.
