This folk culture museum opened in 1980. The former villa of a wealthy farming family has been reproduced here, with the rear house, main house, and bamboo house featuring a thatched-roof, wooden construction. The Asuke Mansion reproduces the handmade aspects that were a part of mountain life in the region, among them charcoal brazier cooking, traditional paper making, Kiji, and weaving. Ten different handicrafts are demonstrated by artisans. These handicrafts include ones you can try for yourself.
