2 reviews of Nihon Minka-en


This is a forest with a path that is followed between trees. A Japanese home is here that the public can enter to take a look at how people lived at that time. It has been restored since 1965 and buildings from all regions in Japan were brought here, that is 23 different buildings. It's kind of village in the forest, so the walk is required. Inside the houses are preserved utensils typical of the time and can see teapots, farm implements or early versions of woven straw floor later evolved into the mats we know now. There is also a soba noodle restaurant, a stage featuring traditional Kabuki performances in specific days, and indigo dyeing workshop.
