Kayabuki no Sato features seven traditional thatched-roof houses from different periods in history that have been relocated from all over Japan. The interior of several houses displays several thousand antiques that date back as far as the Taisho period, from rustic historic chests to tiny make-up kits. You would be hard-pressed to find a collection of antiquities that is comparable in Japan, even in larger institutions such as the National Museum. In addition, the village puts on regular seasonal activities throughout the year. Visitors are encouraged to spend a day experiencing the sights and sounds of ancient Japan. An entrance fee of ¥500 is charged for anyone not staying at the facility overnight.
