  • I much enjoyed this collection of outdoor historical buildings. We spent two hours here at the end of September in comfortable weather, and I can imagine spending more. You'll be taking your shoes on ...  more »
  • This village is made of replicas or buildings transplanted from elsewhere. It's a 10 or 15 minute walk from the Hokkaido Museum, which is excellent. The village has little charm and the 5 minute horse...  more »

  • A must - visit sight just outside Sapporo! The details in everything is just too hard to believe! And the feeling walking along the streets of this 2-century old town and being able to enter almost every house and shop is something one can not experience anywhere else! There is also a restaurant near the exit with local specialties and a souvenir shop. Be prepared however for a very big stroll as it takes at least 2-3 hours to see everything!
  • Interesting place with different types of buildings. They were actual buildings used in different parts of Hokkaido and they were gathered in this place. When we went there in this winter, there were volunteers who surved tea and reddish pickles made in a traditional way. They were kind and fun to talk to. It takes some time to go there from the city center but if you have extra time, this place would be a good choice for you to explore.
  • Was such an interesting museum! Great to visit on a nice day. You can enjoy the sunshine and walk a lot while still learning so much. If you have the chance please visit. If you can't read Japanese they have most of the exhibits also written in English.
  • 54 buildings and a lot of variety. Initially thought it would take an hour or so, butthere was enough for around two hours for a reasonably quick visit. In depth you could takelonger. Good level of English for my visit.
  • Many historical architecture. Most of the information boards were in japanese though. Nevertheless, still a worthwhile visit. Check out the hokkiado museum just a 3-5 min walk away (buy tickets together with tickets to the historical museum as it would be cheaper). Museum shows the history of hokkaido
