Sanshu Asuke Yashiki | Japan Highlights Travel, for sightseeing around Tokaido

Nagoya Station 

[Sanshu Asuke Yashiki]

Where traditional craftwork is handed down to today

"Make things you need for your daily life by yourself". This is the policy of Sanshu Asuke Yashiki. It is a folk museum reproducing the lives of farmers in mountainous villages, where their actual tools are used. Try-it-yourself experiences of Japanese crafts that are disappearing are offered, such as weaving, paper making, and straw working, etc. At the restaurant, you can enjoy popular mountain village food like goheimochi.
