  • Awesome experience!!!!! Saw different types of houses here!!!! Loved the Indian style !!! Reminded me of home😍
  • An excellent theme park where you can experience ethnic cultures from around the world, visit actual houses and try on costumes for additional price from different cultures around the world. The place is a huge outdoor museum and you need a good 3 hours to see it properly. There is a Bus to take you around inside the park(separate ticket prices) with interesting bus stops like Bali, Germany, Okinawa etc. I think the management needs to think of introducing some new ideas to make the place more exciting and lively. Be prepared to shell out at least 5,000 JPY including parking, entrance, food, costumes etc. when visiting this place.
