  • A hidden gem near Tokyo. There are almost 30 preserved minka (folk house) from Edo period relocated from other parts of Japan including the picturesque Gassho Style houses found in Gokayama. Random wo...  more »
  • I've been to two places in Setagaya, Seijo and Okamoto, but they were bigger than either of them and were impressive. I feel like I've gone back in time to the rural areas of the Edo period.

  • This is a nice place with the story of old Japanese homes. A nice place to visit to see and feel the old Japanese architecture. The place is very big and takes around 3hrs to 4hrs to explore properly. You can also observe the activities related to old art and craft and can also participate in some workshops. The place is full of small hills with different designs of old houses. It is an interesting place for kids also to understand the history and ancient culture.
  • This is easily one of our favorite places we’ve visited. We wanted to get out of the city, since we live in Yokohama, and this was a perfect choice. The area is beautiful, with old traditional homes nestled into a small wooded valley. The cafe near the main entrance is a must—the ambiance is lovely, and the drinks/desserts are delicious. The park in general is a large area with some stairs, so wear comfy shoes. I appreciated that the signs include English, and the staff were very informative and friendly. When we went they had hearth fires going in a few of the houses and it smelled amazing. We will definitely return! For 500 yen/person, it’s a great way to spend a quiet day if you enjoy history, architecture or nature.
