Step into the World of Kenji Miyazawa’s Fairy Tales

At the Miyazawa Kenji’s Dowa Mura (Fairy Tale Village) in Hanamaki, visitors get the opportunity to step into the fantastic world of one of Japan’s most famed authors of children’s books and explore a variety of attractions and activities brought to life from his stories. A visit to this picturesque park is perfect for kids, yet interesting enough for travelers of all ages.

    The fantastic adventure begins at the Milky Way Station, a replica of the station found in the “Night of the Galactic Railroad” and the gate to the Fairy Tale Village. Past the gate and on your right you’ll enter the Fairy Path, a path which crosses the surrounding forests where guests can listen to Miyazawa’s stories as they walk along or sit on the benches and dream about part of one of the poet’s stories. A boardwalk then takes you from the Wildgrass Park to Kenji’s School, the main building in the park.

    Kenji’s School is divided into five different sections; the Fantastic Hall, Space Room, Sky Room, Water Room, and Earth Room. In the “School” kids of all ages will be transported to the poet’s imaginary world that include sitting under the starry skies, walking through a kaleidoscope and past floating clouds, and hanging out with giant insects. The whole experience through the building is short but is well thought to let visitors escape momentarily from the real world outside.

    Next up are Kenji’s Classrooms. Kenji loved studying many aspects of the universe he lived in and in the seven log-wood cabins that make up the classroom, visitors can experience just that. Each cabin has a theme based on the Miyazawa’s books, and walking into each one will give kids the chance to learn about rocks, birds, stars, animals, and plants that appear in the writer’s fairy tales. The displays in the “classrooms” are mainly in Japanese, but are still visually appealing and spending a few minutes in each cabin is worth the time. The last two cabins in this section are shops where you can pick up Kenji Miyazawa’s memorabilia and omiyage from Hanamaki.

    To round up the adventure at the Fairy Tale Village, follow the Owl Path. This path will take you back into the forest and past other simple yet interesting attractions like the Scenery Mirror, the Fairy Tale Bench and the Voice Pipe. The recommended route will take you back to the centre of the park. On occasion, there are special events held in this area, including live performances of various kinds on the stage. Even when no events are held, it is a good spot to relax in the open space and enjoy the refreshing and serene nature of the area.

    Kenji Miyazawa’s Fairy Tale Village is not the only attraction in the area and a visit here can be combined with the other two museums created in the famed writer’s honor. Only a few minutes down the road is Kenji Miyazawa’s Memorial Museum and the Iihatov Center will round up your Kenji Miyazawa themed day.
