“Nice heritage site”

Great museum of buildings and architecture with a art gallery tucked away within it. Got to yashima station via jr train from takamatsu station. There was a specific bus laid on to take visitors to the museum. Bus was 100 yen but you were given a token to take 100 yen off the entry price. Route through museum takes you uphill through forest and you see a number of buildings that have been transported to the site along the way. Similar feel to the Weald and down museum in the UK but perhaps with less variety of buildings. Route ends up back at the start point and it is an easy downhill walk back to the station.

We saw more than20 buildings from around the island relocated to this area. It is easy to reach by the light rail system and worth at least half a day.
Several places to eat there or nearby.

The outdoor museum is situated on a hillside with structures faithfully rebuilt to show life as it was back in the late 1800's. The first stop is a rope bridge which many people walk over with some degree of fear...

I have visited many such open-air museums such as Skansen in Stockholm, which claims to be the first. This is probably the most intimate and detailed look at rustic life of the past that I have seen; and in the fall, at least, certainly the most photogenic.

The attraction tells a lot about Shikoku's history, such as the ancient industries or how the architecture in the place has changed. Some culture is revealed but you do not learn a lot about Shikoku culture.

One thing to note is that the attraction-flow is not very smooth. Although there is a designated route for the visitors, the attractions on the route do not follow any sort of chronological order. That is one bad point of the tourist experience.

Also I did not get information about events in this village, so maybe I did not fully enjoy the attraction.
