In Japan Open Air Folk House Museum old folk houses are on display on the gentle slopes of Tama hills.

Some Japanese Folk Stories

Just as in other countries, there are many stories in Japan that are passed on by word of mouth. The Japan Open-air Folk House Museum monthly offers you the experience of folk story telling around a sunken hearth, where the stories has been handed down to this day. While the stories are told in Japanese dialects, we prepare the small leaflets with the English abstracts of the stories in each session. We are looking forwards to seeing you around a hearth.
