A MUST GO if you want to learn about Hokkaido Culture, History... in an easy way, visiting different buildings displaced reconstructed (or replicas). Spend at least 2 or 3 hours if you want to enter to all of them (more than 50).

We visited the Historical Village of Hokkaido last time we visited Japan. It was mid autumn, and therefore snow was lacking, but the village was interesting all the same. It is easy to get around and worth a look. Our trip to Hokkaido was one of the best we have ever had. I'm not very fond of snow, so I'm glad we went in autumn

We enjoyed this village with over 50 public and private buildings. Many are not original; but was very interesting anyway. The buildings were placed very close to one another so even though this village is a large acreage, it wasn’t a long walk. It was a particularly enjoyable walk through the winter crisp air. There are no attendants in the buildings, you are free to visit on your own. If you are bothered to take off your shoes for some buildings, just stand at the cemented entrance and peer through. Good enough. About three hours should be set aside for the walk plus lunch.

It gives a great impression of how a historic community looked like. Be it a town, fishermen or mountain village. The only downside is the following: we were visiting in December, with quite some snow being present in the village. As such, we were wearing appropriate gear (sturdy shoes). However in most of the houses you need to take off your shoes before being able to enter. Don't understand me wrong: I know it is a big "no-no" to enter a house with shoes on - but there is also a practical side to it. Taking off heavy snow boots to see the insides of 50+ houses is simply impractical and after all it is a public museum. I also understand and fully appreciate that the historic houses need to be protected from stomping feet. Maybe the curators can think of a solution, and put some thick heavy rubber mats on the floor, maybe even transparent ones? This way the house is protected but still it provides an easy way to walk through the houses without having to take your shoes off. The fact that we couldn't easily access each house kind of dampened the fun for us visiting this otherwise great museum.

Nice place to stroll and see the different historical structures of Japan. You will spend a good 2 to 3 hours there. There is rest room and restaurant in the park. I love the fisherman village. Great to take lots of photo.
