More scarecrows than people – that’s this village’s claim to fame, and it’s hard to ignore.

Created by a local villager in memory of those who have died or moved away from her hometown, the creations include housewives in kitchens, schoolchildren at their desks and topical creations in a bus stop. Depending on your feelings about scarecrows, the village is either really fun or completely horrifying, but either way,it’s well worth a visit on your way to the husband and wife bridges or Mount Tsurugi.
