Initially did not think much of the place before going, and went just because we are in town for Fujiko museum. We are so glad we went! The whole place was big and a good relaxing walk, not tiring at all. The folk houses are informative for us and the people inside them burning charcoals(or boiling water, not quite sure) are very friendly too.
Get in from the front entrance and out at rear exit, will get you to the very beautiful park and just mins to the Municipal Science Museum. Just follow the route instructions.
