Several Japanese movies apparently filmed at this location, which covers a large area. We were part of a guided coach tour, a local guide joined our coach at the entrance and gave a continuous commentary throughout our stay; but it was all in Japanese, which none of us understood, so our guide interpreted! If you are a Japanese movie buff then this site will be of great interest. It is still interesting to see the various sets even without knowledge of the films filmed here. Sets include a mountain village and a fishing village plus a fort. We were there just as the rice growing in the on set paddy field was being harvested, fascinating to see up close. The whole area has the mountains as a backdrop. You can try on some of the costumes; kimonos. The site did look a little overgrown but we were told a movie was filmed as recently as 6 months ago.

It is only interesting for those familiar with Japanese movie or TV drama. Pay extra ¥500 for shuttle bus between different zones is highly recommended.
