Owner description: What exactly is Experience Museum, Boso-no-mura? Boso-no-mura is a facility that reproduces a Japanese scenery of 150 years ago at the Boso area (including the Narita Airport area) which were old samurai residences, and farmhouses, and other buildings. Here, you can experience first-hand various types of Japanese culture such as traditional crafts and events that have been passed down through the generations. The facility also has a museum that features exhibits from the primitive era to the present. There are about 400 types of demonstrations and hands-on experien ce programs that are offered during the year. Here we present a few of them. ※Please mail or fax us in advance to ask about the schedules for hands-on programs.

I went with my Family (2 middle schoolers and 3 gradeschool). They enjoyed walking around the museum with their costumes (if you are planning to wear costumes, bring cash, they don't accept credit card). I would recommend this for a family activity. They also have mini classes on how to do calligraphy, using of chopsticks and etc. I wish we had more time to stay, but it was all worth it.

If you are staying near the airport and have nothing to do this is the place to go.
They have the atmosphere of old time Japan so its nice to look at. Also, depending on when you go there are many cheap activities you can participare in,
when I went they had choptick making classes, rice bowl painting etc. On special events they have food stalls with traditional festival foods.

There is also a museum of life in Japan way back in the day.

Entrance to here is 300 yen, sadly no dogs allowed inside.

Go if you have time or if you are nearby but its not such a big deal to come just for this

Great place to visit to find out more about the way of life in historical Japan. Practical approach, with real life working recreations of buildings, farming techniques, cooking, weaving, smithing, tatami making... Everything you can imagine! You can do classes here in calligraphy and other traditional crafts and skills also. Got kids? Let them try on samurai costume or dress as a geisha. Something for everyone.

It was quaint quiet and peaceful. You can appreciate the old Japanese way enjoy some ice candy like Popsicle or eat hand made soba or the inari sushi which fried tofu cooked sweetened broth with sushi rice like mixture filled very delicious. They serve cold soba hand made and very good. They have classes in making your own knife or paper mache mask. It is a low intensity activity but it's quiet great air great bathrooms. Just sitting around doing nothing is great

This old village reproduction showed a great view a old Japan.
A Samurai house, local businesses ie basket weaving, pottery, blacksmith, saki house and paper making are on view and accessible. Laid out in a large park with lunch areas. Village garden and a working water wheel are also on view. Well worth the visit.
