    It is the exhibition reconstructed buildings of the Meiji era of the country important cultural asset building 10 and 68 open air museum. Foot movement is possible in much than expected look all around and the extensive grounds is a village can be utilized when navigating in an area village 5 retro Kyoto City tram running still, SL locomotive and bus. (Charges apply) very good outdoor museum was facing the Lake Iruka site. Access from Sakae bus terminal (OASIS 21) location.

    I went to more than 10 years. Went to feel fresh and I felt funny but also caveats. First is access. Recommended by car. 5 km from Chuo Expressway Komaki Kita i.c as arrived in about 10 minutes. Transportation is not good. Takes 30 minutes from Nagoya Station, Meitetsu Inuyama station, the number of small bus transit, 20 minutes more. Direct bus service from Nagoya Station Meitetsu bus Center is just too much or 1 hour 20 minutes. Second is for Inuyama Hill made up Dow is intense. Many walking trails and would also include stairs, sturdy little legs bare. For the first time village bus get tired one day are safe is. Visit of nice weather related, second and third is so any tourist destination and there are difficult to recommend. From the age of the buildings and terrain that differ in comfort. Now, what to watch? Contact volunteers get lost if you are always near the main gate. Building because more than 60 visits an efficient way to get good. First the first Imperial Hotel back bus, using steam locomotives and Kyoto City tram (common ticket purchase required), while you can see in one day most effectively and in some cases it does. In terms of my personal preference with number 1 Imperial Hotel main entrance. Will be with you for a special coffee, Café on the 2nd floor in the open. The second is the Xavier Cathedral. Atmosphere the stained glass rose window began would be as the weather is nice, the best space. The third was Natsume Soseki House. Den while watching cats, garden writer written by first sliding cat is interesting. To further enjoy watching from the other buildings and research ago you bet. Day as Nagoya I 3-Chome (some up to 5-chome) of streetcar Kyoto shichijo station "noodle restaurant Nagoya Hermitage" of noodles and miso delicious delicacies. Admission and μ card monthly discount, I checked because many discount admission at the end, purchased 1 year senior pass port in the village (by car so be free on weekdays). Many times going to enjoy relaxing time of the Meiji era. How well you do.

Where to stay in Inuyama

Inuyama doesn't possess a huge amount of places to stay, but what it does have tends toward more upmarket options. Some showpiece hotels sit by the river, offering commanding views as it flows past town. Hotels range from Western in style to traditionally Japanese, but are always modern and well-maintained. Elsewhere in town, you'll find a set of simpler hotels close to the train station, as well as the odd budget-friendly hostel, although spaces in the latter remain very limited, so reserve your place in advance.
