Wander through old dwellings from Japan's rural past

The Open-Air Museum of Old Japanese Farmhouses brings together 11 traditional houses from various regions in Japan. Find out what distinguishes the lifestyles of farmers in Kagoshima to the south from those in Iwate to the north. Erected between the 17th and 19th centuries, each structure showcases the distinct wisdom and cultural practices of the corresponding area.

The museum is located within Hattori Rokuchi Park north of Osaka in Toyonaka. From Umeda Station, take the Midosuji subway line bound for Senri-chuo Station to Ryokuchikoen Station. From there, walk into the park and find the museum, which is located on the northwest side.
