One of the best of it's kind I've seen
Jul 2015
I found out about this place from a travel brochure of Ehime which I picked up at the Uwajima Tourist Info Office. Never heard of it before. Yeah, another one of these Edo period theme parks. The place is also a bit out of the way. No way you can take a bus or walk from a train station. Even via rental car, I had to use my Google maps to find the location, and even then, it was in Kanji on the screen. Maybe 25' north of Uwajima, off Route 378 from 56. But what a gem of a spot! The facility is small and compact to walk around and the buildings were immaculate in construction, with the exception of one of the thatched roof structures. Some of my pics looked similar to Uchiko, and there's a picturesque watchtower. What I liked was the attention to detail and consistency of the park in that the buildings did not contain any modern giveaways inside, but contained mainly historical artifacts. The gassho-zukuri building even had a pot with boiling water over a charcoal fire! Next to one of the buildings was a pile of chopped, brown tree branches for it's implied historical use as firewood. Next to the entrance building was a quaint plot of land with corn and other vegetables growing, quite a nice touch. The park had the ubiquitous cafe with tables and chairs, but it was closed due to so little activity. Better yet, no tourists or tour buses! I was the only one there except for when I left, when I noticed another car in the parking lot. Interestingly, the park is located right next to a water park for kids, which was similarly empty the Saturday I visited in July.
