  • Moved old buildings, has been reproduced. On the vast land of Tokyo Dome 10 minutes and lined with buildings, one at a time to visit and three hours I took. "Nishin goten" appeared in the drama "IM". Take a look at the volunteer guides, I from listen to description. Fine you notice by yourself and do not know can you tell me a lot of things. Mannequin is in the building. Even if you know every dirty. Insect bites and the surrounding forest, so people-friendly bug spray and I think. In addition, good walking shoes, easy take off take off your shoes when entering the building, so is recommended.

  • Visit to Hokkaido, the third at this time to see the new place went on. Here the history of Hokkaido could make as much as you see all of the old era, showing the buildings and are supposed to recreate the lifestyle of the time. It's pretty to watch, but there are many more great natural scenery in Hokkaido Hokkaido trip as if for the first time to this place other than the place where the thorns road.

  • A beautiful outdoor museum with all the old buildings of Hokkaido. This is a beautiful place to take photos. A horse carriage runs along the center of the road. Recommended to take a ride and enjoy the scenery. There is a children playground where you can play with tops, stilts, swings and more games. A free art and craft lesson is available to try out making your own toys. Transportation to this place is infrequent. remember to check the schedule.
  • Really wonderful place. Highly recommend to come. A little barrier to come is long distance from station to museum. Almost one bus per one hour. I walked up, it could be tired. But scenery is so nice and coming here is totally worth it.
  • Lots of historic houses of different era in Japan. A section for kids to experience traditional childs play. My kids loved it.
  • Although not so much tourist but actually its a very interesting open air museum with rebuild of various historical building... wondering around is very convenient...
  • I'm torn, it's a reconstituted village with buildings from very different periods of time. Some are better than other. I've seen better more authentic villages, but if you haven't, you may enjoy this one.
