  • Shin-Sapporo station bus is the pioneer village at 800 yen. 65 years old or more requires proof of age free. As a development of Hokkaido heritage in historical buildings of the Meiji period romantic feel. Able to be touched as part of a development order from ezo to Hokkaido in modern era Pioneer life is felt in the skin. Feel the spirit of the age old settlers used Sapporo Odori, formerly Pohang River Branch Office, old settlers used industrial. Old Sapporo police South Ichijo police 派出所 urban group.

  • Taken for granted, but after the Meiji era of pioneer buildings so mainland and, as it still was not feeling things unique to Hokkaido. Inside the building is very cold, I felt the difficulty of people at that time.

  • A good little place to explore various styles of original Japanese and 'Western' Japanese housing. It's not mind blowing but we enjoyed the beautiful winter scenery that went with it. Get a Sapporo Select Course B ticket to access this, the museum and 1 other location of choosing from a small list (such as the TV Tower) for ¥1,350.
  • Authentic, tranquil, historic structures gathered in one beautiful setting.
  • Couldn't think of a better place to spend a blistery afternoon! Shortly after we arrived we were greeted by a friendly volunteer who was quick to offer us a free guided tour of the sprawling complex. The kind gesture really made our trip; the buildings came alive as their historical value was explained to us and the intense effort it took to reassemble all the buildings in a centralised location. It had the potential to feel like a tourist trap, but it really didn't. The boards and demonstrations were illustrative and informative, would definitely recommend!
  • Great place to know Japan historic places
  • Cute but a bit out of the way. You can print postcards on an old fashioned printing press.
