We saw more than20 buildings from around the island relocated to this area. It is easy to reach by the light rail system and worth at least half a day. Several places to eat there or nearby.

Lots of history and udon at the end of it. Definitely stay and try the Sanuki udon there. Kagawa is the world udon centre.

The 31 antique buildings are carefully placed so as to show each one separately. There are surprises I will not disclose but the museum is at the top of my list of necessary to mention.

This is a wonderfully interesting open air museum with buildings from various parts of the area including family farm houses, production facilities for things like soy sauce and sugar, a kabuki theatre and so forth. It's set on a hillside and the terrain is very...More

This is not an expansive open air museum, but it is in a beautiful setting and has excellent information in Japanese and English posted by each structure. The buildings were moved from Shinkoku Island and are from the Edo and Meiji period and include farmhouses,...More
