Went to this outside museum today of Farmhouses that have been taken from different sites all over Japan and rebuilt in one place, Osaka’s Ryokuchi-koen park. The park is great. Such a large area filled with everthing from baseball, basket ball and soccer pitches to an outside swimming complex for the summer months.
The museum was lovely to walk around even though it was raining a little. The are all thatched houses, all with harths and strangely none with chimneys - must ave been smokey back then I thought. There wasn’t much in theway of English explanations but they labelled what was what: kitchen, bedroom, drawing room, stable, lav. They also had traditional gardens set out between the houses. Very pleasant indeed.
There were a few huge groups of school kids, all with their coloured caps on so as not to get lost. Reminded me of my school outings… the one day it always rains!
Here are a few photos.
