Introduction

What exactly is Experience Museum, Boso-no-mura?

Boso-no-mura is a facility that reproduces a Japanese scenery of 150 years ago at the Boso area (including the Narita Airport area) which were old samurai residences, and farmhouses, and other buildings. Here, you can experience first-hand various types of Japanese culture such as traditional crafts and events that have been passed down through the generations.

The facility also has a museum that features exhibits from the primitive era to the present.

There are about 350 types of demonstrations and hands-on experien ce programs that are offered during the year. Here we present a few of them.

※Please phone or fax us in advance to ask about the schedules for hands-on programs.
