Interesting open air museum to visit if you want to know a bit more about JP facilities and way of leaving in the past. Beautiful place as well for a walk. Easy to go there from city center.

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.
