Great experience to see an old time village the way it was when there was a community. The attention to detail given in preserving this village is incredible. The buildings are very grand and the architecture is clearly from Western influence. It takes around 2 hours to see the whole town. There's an entrance offer with the Hokkaido Museum as well, it's a good opportunity to see both sites in the same day.
Although this was out of the way and far from the city, it was a nice place to see how the Japanese worked and lived before. There are many types of architecture that you can enter and have a glimpse of the past. We went in late December and it was covered in snow (which the kids loved). They can lend you snow boots too if you didn't bring. It's a huge area (one that we didn't get to explore all the way through).
