Shikoku-mura is one of the best places to see traditional Japanese buildings in natural surroundings. Each of the attractions is hidden by the forest, so there are lots of surprises as you gradually walk up the mountainside. Buildings from various areas have been moved into...More

It was interesting to learn about Japan in the old days, especially about their way of producing soy sauce. The traditional buildings in this area are also beautiful so I recommend this place for those of you who like history and architecture.

A chance to see traditional Japanese country houses brought there from different places. Mostly late 19th / early 20th century. It is within walking distance from Yashima train station

Much of the charm of this place is the uneven stone pathways and stairs leading up and down to the old buildings, so I encourage you to wear comfy shoes. Sitting inside some of the old display houses were volunteer staff thrilled to welcome us...More

The ticket is currently 800 yen without, 1000 yen including the Tadao Ando museum. We probably should have taken it - it looked promising from the outside. We got free Amazake and Mochi for the New Year instead. We were slow and took 2-3 hours,...More
