Historic Village of Hokkaido

The Historic Village of Hokkaido (J̑, Kaitaku no Mura) is an open air museum in the suburbs of Sapporo. It exhibits about 60 typical buildings from all over Hokkaido, dating from the Meiji and Taisho Periods (1868 to 1926), the era when Hokkaido's development was carried out on a large scale. There are four different sections: a town, fishing village, farm village and a mountain village.

The Historical Museum of Hokkaido (JLO, Kaitaku Kinenkan) documents the history of Hokkaido's development and is located about a ten minute walk from the open air museum. The museum has eight areas that chronologically cover the prefecture's history from its first occupation by humans about 20,000 years ago to the post war years after 1945 and into the future.

How to get there
The Historic Village of Hokkaido is located in the Nopporo Forest Park outside of central Sapporo.

From Sapporo Station, take a local train to Shinrin Koen Station (15 minutes, 260 yen, frequent departures) from where the museum and open air museum can be reached in a short bus ride (5 minutes, 1-2 buses per hour) or a 20-30 minute walk. Alternatively, you can board the same bus from Shin-Sapporo Station (15 minutes).
