A lovely museum on the whole. Enjoyed visiting each house for a look at how it used to be. Remember to enter the museum near the entrance for a display of the wildlife in the tohoku area. Beware, the frequency of buses is very low and you may end up waiting more than an hour before one can bring you... More

It was a shame that I lacked enough time to explore this place fully as there was a lot to look at. We only had about 30 minutes, but you could easily spend more than an hour exploring the grounds and the farmhouses. English pamphlets are available which give an overview of the place and a map which helps give... More

If you have a guide with you and can understand Japanese, this is really a good place for you to get a feeling of how people lived in Tono around 150 years ago. They also hold crafts workshops and some of the staff even really rear horses - just like how horses were reared a few centuries ago when Tono... More

A collection of old farm buildings spread over a large outdoor area. Very interesting to see, and a nice restaurant. Highly recommended.

This place had so so much history. We got opportunities to go upstairs in the old farmhouses, pet the snow white horse and buy pottery and other souvenirs, eat ice cream in the shop. I could go on and on but the natural scenery was so pretty that you could have just picnicked outside and enjoyed nature. We missed the... More

This was highly recommended to us by friends and I can understand why after we visited. The village is set in the heart of the Japanese countryside in a beautiful pastoral setting. You can meander around at your leisure to see the preserved buildings that show how rural life was in the area. Even during the Golden Week holidays, there... More

Great reconstruction of how a village in the area might have looked a century ago. The houses are of course mostly the former residences of the better off villagers, but they're very well preserved and the area around is very scenic and makes for a lovely stroll. The "village" area is the size of a large park and there are... More
