A fun outdoor “museum” of reconstructed traditional Japanese houses, with Mount Fuji standing impressively in the background.

Use that as your backdrop for your insta-perfect cherry blossom/autumn photos, while clad in kimono or samurai gear. There’s origami, pottery and craft making experiences, plus local artwork on sale. For around ¥500 you can make a colorful acorn accessory.

Access: From JR Kawaguchiko station, take the Green Line Bus that stops at the entrance to Iyashi no Sato (Stop No. 48).
