  • From Sakata station is the bus was about 1 hour or 2 hours. Walk about 25 minutes? Feel the history is the building itself, but lonely winter behind the trees. Is better for summer or fall.

  • Sakata's leading tourist destinations. Building and tree lined landscape is breathtaking. In the outskirts in the souvenir shop, shop, restaurant, and Museum. Lunch at the restaurant "fragrant Tei. Order a special lunch. It is a cuisine using ingredients from local Yamagata beef, sashimi, etc. Price 2,500 yen (tax excluded). Limited quantity products. A little luxury meals are served from noon.

  • Nicely restored/maintained rice storehouses plus small museum.
  • Atmosphere and is perfect for exploring. Souvenirs and food. Parking and narrow. Another pretty good breakfast. If perhaps time is the meal eaten smoothly.

  • Is the place you want pictures to take in every season and taste. It is good to see free of artefacts, the Museum offers flower, rich in souvenirs. Where the parking lot is always crowded, narrow parking lot for tourist attractions. Zelkova serrata tree-lined entrance to parking and smoking, although this too narrow.
