Kodaira Furusato Mura

HOME > Japan’s Local Treasures > Kodaira Furusato Mura


Experience life in pre-modern rural Japan at a unique village in Kodaira, Tokyo

Kodaira City, Tokyo



Learn and celebrate the history of Kodaira Furusato Mura, a historical farming village complete with relocated and reconstructed 17th- and 18th-century buildings. Experience what life was like in a farming village by gathering around the sunken hearth inside the former Kohyama family residence. You can also learn how villagers used water to grind grains. 

Visit the former entrance hall in the residence of the Ogawa family, the family who founded Ogawa village (current day Kodaira) after the construction of the Tamagawa Josui canal was complete, and the previous Ogawa-cho post office, built in the Showa era. 

Every February 3rd or 4th, Kodaira Furusato Mura celebrates Setsubun, a holiday which celebrates the start of spring by throwing beans to ward off demons and inviting in good luck. Many other holidays are celebrated every year, such as Girls’ Day (March 3rd) and Children’s Day (May 5th). Check out the village’s event list on their homepage for more details. 


How to get there


From Tokyo Station, take the Yamanote Line to Takadanobaba Station, and then the Seibu line to Hanakoganei Station (about 45 minutes). Kodaira Furusato Mura is about a 20-minute walk away.
