“The Samurai Village”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2013

This is one of the interesting place to visit around Lake Saiko, Kawaguchiko area. The entrance fee is 500 yen/person. The village is very beautiful. In the winter setting, snows are seen everywhere and the view of Mount Fuji from this village is magnificent. When you enter the village, a guide map is provided for the whole village. In one of the small hut, there is a fireplace with an old lady brewing tea. You can sit down and enjoy the tea together with some little japanese delicacies.

For those who are interested in Samurai, the Samurai clothes are available for renting with 500 yen. Do wear it and take loads of photo with them!! You can get the best view on the bridge with Mount Fuji as the background!!

Note: Shuttle bus is available to reach here and daily pass can be bought from the tourist info center at Kawaguchiko Station. Do note that some timing is not available during winter!!

“folk village”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2013

we were lucky enough to see this reproduction village under 40cm of snow. it was so pretty. a great insight into rural life and just so pictureseque with mt fuji overseeing the village. being winter not all the cottages were open, but some offered crafts to do or just look at. my daughter and i enjoyed painting some terracotta clay figures as souvenirs of the village. there was only one choice of restaurant open to obtain food but it was good.
you do have to ensure you watch the time so you can get the bus back, as it only comes hourly.

A wonderful surprise. Fantastic photographic angles and majestic Mt Fuji in the background. Eat a Fuji apple or try cherry icecream in a very pretty setting.

“Really pretty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2012

If you are not prepare for hard-core wild life hiking etc. and interested Japanese traditional county life and history, please visit here. I was with my 75 years old mom and it was great choice.

Just taste slow life and traditional crafts. Also, there is a hat where you can rent Japanese traditional kimono and armor. You can take photo or walk around with the costume.

Hope you will enjoy.
