The museum is about an hours drive from a Otaru; one minute you are driving through heavily-built-up town, but when you turn off the main road you are almost immediately in lovely countryside. It was a coldish day when we went, so the museum was...More

This is definitely worth visiting if interested in some of the Hokkaido architecture. It isn’t by any means definitive but it was informative and well presented. Generally, a do it yourself visit as it has sufficient English explanations. I didn’t bother entering the buildings as...More

Located 20-30 minute drive from central Sapporo. Many buildings reconstructed to form this village. Different types of architecture. Many buildings were open to look around inside. Horse-drawn sleigh operating in the winter.

Coming to Hokkaido, do not miss this place. With real village, we can learn about the lifestyle and culture of Hokkaido. The place is also instagramable, beautiful. However it is too quiet so sometimes it creates creepy feelings. Above all, very good to explore.
