This was absolutely fantastic if you are like me and love history and historical buildings. The only thing I would recommend is do not go in the middle of winter. Most of the buildings require you to take your shoes off before entering. This was a bit of a pain with my winter gear on. Each building has exhibits and... More

You don't have to be a history buff to enjoy this historical village. The 800Yen entrance let you wander around the village, going inside the house of your liking; a school, a printing shop, a sake-maker, herring storage and staff room among other... The houses are well-preserved, though some are quite empty. THere is a recommended tour, but you are... More

this is my favorite site in Sapporo. Houses of some leaders and normal people re-creat daily life hundreds ago. Horse car only run on the weekend. It's big snow on the day we visited. If weather allow, 2-3 hours are recommend to look around.

It's worth to visit while you are in Sapporo. Nice atmosphere with old houses, streets to walk and especially not so crowded by tourist. My family took a horse riding for village overview then we walk around. You can enjoy some snow fun there also.

It's a bit tricky to get there. Be sure to check the bus schedule to avoid excessive walk from the train station. Once you get there, it's amazing. It's essentially a full-size historical village, with many restored original buildings. You can go inside and see what it's like back then (unheated, however). Since it isn't easy to get there and...

This was a fun side trip for half a day. It was pretty easy to get to by bus from the Shin-Sapporo station. The signs there are in English and Japanese, so it's easy to read the history of the buildings. I was pretty amazed at the collection of buildings and architecture and how it was preserved. I think the... More

This is PERFECT for people with itchy feet because one gets to experience what old Hokkaido felt like by stepping into dozens of historical buildings that have been carefully assembled in this sprawling location. The entrance building was the old rail station, and there are also an old school, barbershop, sweet shop, noodle shop et cetera. It is a lot... More

This point of interest is often neglected by tourists, IMO, it offers a good day trip out esp. in a sunny day, as the settings are mostly outdoors. It's educational and fun. I went on Tozai Line (Subway)[Shin Sapporo Sta.]+bus bound for [No.22 Kaitakunomura](15min) to last bus stop. It costs ¥830 for the admission, you can also buy the comb.... More

One gets to follow the growth of Hokkaido through the unique presentations of the building architecture from 1800's when Hokkaido was open to foreign trade and influences.

Highly recommended. The historic buildings have many stories to tell, each unique in their own ways. These buildings were imported from different parts in Hokkaido, coming together to weave the fascinating story of Hokkaido. The place is big and definitely can spend a morning there. Go early as the tourist buses come around noon time and if it's too crowded,... More
