Get a taste of Kodaira’s history
For many years of its history, Kodaira, originally founded as Ogawa village, was farmland. Learn about and celebrate the history of the land at Kodaira Furusato Mura, a historical farming village home to relocated and reconstructed 17th and 18th century buildings.
Experience restored Edo-era buildings
Experience what life was like in a farming village. Gather around the sunken hearth fireplace inside the former Kamiyama family residence. Learn how villagers used water to grind grains. Visit the former entrance hall of the Ogawa family residence, the family that developed the Tamagawa Josui canal and subsequently founded Ogawa village (current day Kodaira). Imagine the hustle and bustle that used to occur in the former Ogawa-cho post office.
Participate in cultural events
The village periodically holds cultural and holiday events. Every February the Kodaira Furusato Mura celebrates Setsubun, a holiday which celebrates the start of spring by warding off demons and inviting in good luck. Participate in throwing beans at demons. Other holidays such as Girls Day (March 3rd) and Children’s Day (May 5th) are celebrated, and the village is decorated. In addition, cultural events such as music performances featuring traditional Japanese instruments, traditional cooking events, and Edo-era games are held.
