A fun outdoor “museum” of reconstructed traditional Japanese house, with Mount Fuji standing impressively in the background.
Use that as your backdrop for your insta-perfect cherry blossom/autumn photos, while clad in kimono or samurai gear (¥1,000 per person).
There’s origami, pottery and craft making experiences, plus local artwork on sale. For ¥500 you can make a colorful acorn accessory.
Cheapos will be pleased to know there’s a discount coupon saving you ¥50 off the already pretty cheap entrance fee of ¥350.
Access: From JR Kawaguchiko station, there’s a bus headed for 風穴 that stops at the entrance to Iyashi no Sato.
