I much enjoyed this collection of outdoor historical buildings. We spent two hours here at the end of September in comfortable weather, and I can imagine spending more. You'll be taking your shoes on and off, so be prepared.

Excellent option to see the Japanese culture by typical architecture. The historical village is a nice place to visit in Sapporo, the buildings have food maintenance and you can have a fun morning day.

An excellent historical stop, must see for any traveler visiting Hokkaido to learn more about its history. The horse-drawn trolleys are cute, and the buildings are authentic historic structures moved to this park for preservation. The exceptions are the entrance hall and visitor center, which...More
