This open-air museum is made up of the old Gassho-zukuri buildings which are not used anymore. You can see how people live in a traditional lifestyle. There are 25 Gassho-zukuri houses displayed here, including main houses, shrines, temples, and watermills. At the main house, you can even see the attics. There are also a few buildings built in the 18th century. Rest areas where you can have some tea and relax are available. You may want to try the available hands-on activities such as making soba and straw sandals.
