We spend 4 hours here and still didn't see every building they have in here. All the building was kept in a very good condition with some English Information to help you understand what you are looking. Check out the Newspaper house. They will make you a card in old fashion way. Say Hello to the police at the Police... More

This is probably my favourite attraction in Hokkaido. If you like Japanese history and architecture, you will love this. There were villages, comprised of old houses moved from all over Hokkaido to illustrate the lives of Hokkaido people in the past. There are also staff who are in some of the houses. The best moment was when I was having... More

You could spend a whole day here as there are many historical buildings. We took a punt on being able to have lunch and found a real Japanese cafe serving great sobo noodles. W even navigated the ticket machine. It is interesting to see that the history of Hokkaido is not so old. Important information is that is is open... More

This was a fantastic place for our kids to learn a bit more about the coming together of Hokkaido The place is pretty spread out so it takes a while to walk around different places. We only went to about a third of the houses due to time constraints. A highlight for the kids was the horse drawn tram ride..... More

Great place to know about historical building of Hokkaido, dating from the Meiji and Taisho Periods (1868 to 1926). There are four different sections: a town, fishing village, farm village and a mountain village. You can spend 3 hours here leisurely. The staffs are friendly and nice. You can have a cup of tea at fish village. When i visited... More

We are interested in the blending of western and traditional architecture that occurred in the Meiji and Taisho periods. This is a good place to visit to see it. There are several sections that show different parts of the Hokkaido cultural history through architecture: a fishing village, farm village, mountain village as well as many government, educational and town building...

This place is off the beaten track for most international tourists, which is a good thing. The park consists of a bunch of old houses uprooted from all over Hokkaido, grouped into 4 villages. It's an interesting experience, if you haven't been to a similar, but larger one near Nagoya. Don't miss the old Aoyama fishing house. This is the... More

I came here via bus tour. As a tour we gain the most by visiting a lot of places within a days time. So my time here was roughly 1 hour. The historical village of Hokkaido, is exactly that, a bunch of replica buildings showcasing how everything was done back in the days. The old style noodle shop/ blacksmith/grocery store/police...

Great little spot to leisurely look at historical buildings of Hokkaido. There are different areas to the town - fishing village, farm village and mountain village. The buildings are mostly re-located from other areas around Hokkaido from the station masters house to the old school all come with information in English. The Herring fishing family buildings were really interesting and... More
