Shikoku Mura (Shikoku Folk House Museum)

Calm your heart with this scene of Japan and Shikoku in the old days

This is an outdoor museum where old houses from the four prefectures of Kagawa, Ehime, Kochi and Tokushima have been transferred and restored. The museum is also used in social studies programs for children.

The facility is rich in nature, and inside you will find old farmhouses and equipment that will give you a taste of the old lifestyle, in addition to a soy sauce production facility and other traditional industries. There is also a Farmers' Kabuki stage where local people become actors and put on Kabuki shows.

There are art pieces by the carver, Nagare Masayuki, and the Shikoku Mura Gallery, designed by the architect Ando Tadao. You can experience different types of art here. In the gallery you will find a wide range of pieces, including carvings, images of Buddha and scrolls. You can also see a waterscape park (suikei tei-en) that makes use of the slope that extends below the balcony.

For a rest or a meal, you can visit the Ijinkan Tea House, which was a foreign residence transferred from Kobe City in Hyogo Prefecture, or Waraya, an old refurbished farmhouse.
