I expected more according to the information flip. The place is only a street with reproduction of old craftsmanship but almost empty the day I went. Nobody doing nothing. The old big houses worth seeing.

Was here on one of the free Narita Transit tour led by volunteer guides with my teenage kids and totally loved the experience. Narita transit programme sets off from Narita Airport. There is a small entrance fee but it is free for really young kids and seniors. It is part of a compound which has a cosplay attraction (where kids and adults can dress up in kimono, ninja, and samurai costumes for a small fee and walk around the old town), a old townhouse, and a small little park with cafe and shops. In the compound, there is an old 'High Street' with old edo period shops. Each shop is an activity space for different crafts (candle making, cake making, pottery, origami, blacksmith, bamboo craft, rice cracker baking, and much more). There is a replica moat with Koi fishes. If you bring some feed, you can feed the fishes from an old bridge. There is also a samurai house and another farmer house. At the farmer house, you can see how they harvest rice and try old games like spinning top and stilt walking. There are also crafts for sale in the information centre. A most eye opening experience!

This is a combination of a "historical site" and a movie set; as such not much of it is original or old, but it is all in the style of old. The Merchant's street evokes Japan during the Samurai times. It is a pleasant place to visit.

It was a very hot Tuesday when I visited and there was very little going on in the way of Japanese craft making. I opted to walk and see the merchants' houses and village green and drop into a tea house for a cool drink. I also walked to the Fudoki-no-Oka Museum via a beautiful track through a wood. My suggestion would be to go on a weekend when there are more activities and to choose a cool day when you can take advantage of the pretty walks around the museum.
