The Historical Village of Hokkaido is an open-air museum showcasing structures built across Hokkaido from the Meiji to early Showa eras (from the mid-19th to mid-20th centuries)—structures that were relocated for restoration or were reconstructed on the 54.2-hectare compound here.
The village opened in April 1983 to offer a glimpse of what life was like in Hokkaido’s pioneering days and to preserve for posterity buildings that embody local cultural history.
The village itself constitutes a large exhibit. In the summer (from mid-April to November 30), the only horse-drawn trolley in Japan runs, and a horse-drawn sled is available for a ride in the winter (on weekends and national holidays with snow on the ground between December and March, and on weekdays during the Sapporo Snow Festival).
The facility gives a sense of the wisdom and labor of those who engaged in land reclamation in Hokkaido, and each and every structure will transport visitors back to the pioneering days.
