Ends in 40 days

Minkaen (Japan Open-Air Folk House Museum) opened in April of 1967. This year, 2017, marks the 50th anniversary.
To celebrate this major milestone, it will hold a special exhibition which will include items that are usually not for display, such as documents showing the process of Minkaen’s foundation, its original plans, its guidebook and brochure from the first period, and more. Visitors can also get to know the Minkaen’s 50-year history through enjoying sugoroku (a traditional Japanese board game) at the play-corner.
