Wan Akram in the last week

It’s an open museum. More than 50 historical buildings to be explored! Spent 6 hours here just to enter every building and learn about the history! The interior and external architecture are still intact and maintained to reflect the period accurately. Totally worth the visit!

The Historical Village of Hokkaido, or Hokkaido Kaitaku no Mura, is a captivating outdoor museum that vividly brings to life the history of Hokkaido's pioneering era. Stepping into this living museum feels like a journey back in time, as meticulously preserved buildings from the late 19th to early 20th centuries showcase the region's cultural and architectural evolution. Visitors can explore traditional houses, schools, and workshops, gaining insights into the challenges faced by early settlers. The attention to historical accuracy and immersive exhibits makes it an educational and engaging experience. The open-air setting amidst nature adds authenticity to this nostalgic journey, making the Historical Village of Hokkaido a must-visit for those intrigued by Japan's frontier history.

There is so much to see here you need 4-5 hours if you want to do it all and look inside all the buildings. You have to take your shoes off so make sure you have easy access footwear! Some of the paths were closed off due to the heavy snowfall but it didn't detract from the experience as you could still see all the buildings.

A pretty big village outside of Sapporo. Worth the visit and easily accessible by train and bus. The bus stopps at the Museum as well, where you can see some local animals as well as Ainu stuff. Suggest to purchase the ticket for 1,200 yen for both locations. You can easily walk the distance between the village and the museum within 15 minutes. The Museum closes at 16:30 and you'll probably need 1-1,5h to see everything. For the village you'll need more if you enter every house. Be aware that you need to take of your shoes in almost every house. So, don't wear your fancy hiking boots where you need help to get in and out of them.

Great attraction! You can easily spend an entire morning there. It's a very big place. It is very cold in winter and a lot of the places you have to take off your shoes so that makes it less enjoyable (if the places were warmer would be perfect). You can arrive by bus from a metro or train station.
