Boso No Mura is a one-of-a-kind open-air folk museum that revives the early lifestyles and traditions of the Boso region by reproducing a life-size village from the early Edo Period. The reproduced traditional village features various past-day buildings such as farmhouses, craft workshops, old samurai residences, merchant houses, school houses, as well as a museum which exhibits collections of items across a wide time period. A number of interactive workshops and classes are also frequently held at the museum, covering a wide range of traditional activities such as mat weaving, indigo dyeing, blacksmithing, candle making and traditional bead making. Visitors are also given the opportunity to try on authentic samurai armour. The area is also a popular set for films and television dramas, due to its traditional ambience and authenticity.
