Shikoku-Mura Village

Travel Guide - Shikoku-Mura Village

Information

Shikoku-Mura Village is an excellent open-air museum of old residential houses located at the foot of the Yashima Plateau.
The village has 33 classic Japanese family houses and other buildings which were moved from all over Shikoku and neighbouring islands.
There are explanations in English of the many buildings and their history.

Highlights include a traditional vine suspension bridge.
Shodo-shima Island is famed for its traditional farmers' Kabuki performances; the village's fine Kabuki stage came from that island.
Other interesting buildings include a border guardhouse from the Edo Period (1603 - 1868), a bark steaming hut with a stone kiln for making Kouzo (a material to make Japanese paper).
There are also a hut with millstones to make sugar from sugar cane and a storehouse with huge tanks to brew soy sauce.

At the small museum called "Shikoku-Mura gallery" in the village, visitors can see the paintings by Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Pierre Bonnard, sculptures, Buddha statues, bronze wares, and so on.
