Saiko Iyashi no Sato Nemba, Fujikawaguchiko-machi

(4.4/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Museum village that was put together from old reconstructed wooden houses. Insight into trade and retail of rural Japanese society can be studied here vividly. I personally fell many similarities between this and our Black Forest houses on (E.g. no fireplace). A clear recommendation for the tourists who want to learn more about Japanese culture. And a magnificent view on the Fuji san is also still available (if the weather).

  • 強烈建議來河口湖兩天一夜的行程人可以安排里根場這個行程喔,尤其是還沒有機會造訪美山町合掌村的人. 個人是覺得比起河口湖周圍逛一些小景點及搭纜車好玩多了,只是綠線的車次沒紅線多,且車程大概都要半小時左右,但可以邊坐車邊看看河口湖及西湖周邊的環境,認為非常值得一遊喔  more »
  • You can spend a couple of hours visiting the place and learn about local traditions, buy some souvenir or even dressing like a samurai.  more »
