In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
Take a peek into life for a farming village in pre-modern Tokyo at Kodairafurusato Mura. Explore eight restored or faithfully reconstructed buildings dating to the 17th and 18th centuries. The exhibits take you through the history of the area, the cultivation methods and technology of the day, and how the typical farming family lived.
Throughout the year the village celebrates a number of festivals, such as Setsubun in February and Girls’ Day in March, and holds Kamishibai plays—an old fashioned form of street theater involving a narrator and illustrated boards—and karuta card game events. If you are lucky, you may also be able to enjoy their delectable handmade Musashino udon noodles.
For updated information on opening hours, closings, prices, and more, please check the official website or ask the facility directly.
