Saiko Iyashi no Sato Nemba, Fujikawaguchiko-machi

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. Put Saiko Iyashi no Sato Nemba into our Fujikawaguchiko-machi online visit planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Fujikawaguchiko-machi.

  • A little like the village of the village of Palms, you can see some of the village historical materials, as if there are some DIY courses? From this side to shoot Mt. Fuji, the painting is very beautiful, but there is no special business Datong small differences.

  • A beautiful, calm and serene village with views of mount fuji. You can enjoy strolling around or talking with locals. You can also try wearing kimonos and historical armors and get clicked with them at fairly low prices. Don’t forget to eat soba and tempura at this place as it has the real original taste and is very delicious.
  • Was nice to see the traditional thatched roof houses. The area was a lot smaller than what they make it out to be but still worth the visit with a good view of Mt. Fuji
  • Very nice place & view, clean, quiet with Mt.Fuji background & kimono experience
  • Nice serene place with a great view of Fuji-san
  • Must have been. Pretty much. Very good atmosphere. Good value for money. Not so far don't think green bus line 30 minutes to come. 58. don't miss.
