Historical Village

The impressive and entertaining outdoor museum village, depicting Hokkaido life in days of old, is situated in Sapporo at Atsubetsu Ward in a corner of the Hokkaido Nopporo Forest Park. The site features restored or recreated buildings from the Meiji and Taisho periods, and includes edifices like the old Sapporo railway station, old Otaru newspaper company buildings, fishermen's cottages, mountain villas and the like. Horse-drawn trolleys run through the village and in winter horse-drawn sleighs carry visitors around the site.
