  • Its huge, and has a large variety of buildings. I think you can enter all of them. One of my favorites was an old photographers house. The 2nd story roof is genius. We went in snowy season and it was still extremely pleasant despite not everything being accessible. Also there are quite a few species of birds in the area if you have a family member is more into that.
  • Awesome Hokkaido old buildings you can enter to hang out with scary Taisho era mannequins. The little horse looks tired tho ;( Staff is very friendly and have a lot of discounts. Free if you are a student, same as Hokkaido museum nearby.
