Like Edo period at the time. Description of the Guide, you can learn both adults and children can enjoy. Slowly, about 1 hour. Staff, and take a photo.

  • A lovely little spot just down the road from the station. 400 yen to get in. The lighting changes every 15 minutes to give you a feel of a full day back in the Edo Era. You can touch everything in the museum and the guides are very friendly. A few of them speak English too.
  • Fantastic little museum set away from the tourist spots. I was surprised to find the guide book was in English and a member of staff asked me if she could explain anything to me. It is well worth visiting - not only for the town they have set up with buildings you can enter, but also for their famous cat. Dog lovers have a treat waiting too...
  • If you have some curiosity about how people lived in Edo-period, this is the place. You can feel every aspects of life in the Good old sustainable Japan.
  • This was very cool. Especially since we had slept in a similar house the night before
  • Small museum that recreates a village of the Edo period. I strongly suggest buying the English guide book for the maximum experience. Can be fun with kids (4 ish to 12 ish). Maybe 1 to 2 hours worth of things to do.
