The Kurosuke’s House is managed by The Totoro no Furusato Foundation, a public interest incorporated foundation, as a base to protect the forests of the Sayama hills. It is an old folk house that is registered as a National Tangible Cultural Property. It has been open to the public since 2011. The 3,000-square-meter ground on the Sayama hills, which retain the vestiges of old Musashino, includes a farmhouse, a storehouse, and a tea factory, all of which are older than 100 years and are important cultural assets. The house is surrounded by a tea plantation and has a stream and a bamboo forest in the back, so you can experience the views and atmosphere of an old farming life. Totoro Fund-original goods are sold, and events are held at the farmhouse. There are no parking space, so it is recommended to use the public transportation when visiting this place. No English language support is provided. It is a 5-minute walk from the Dainichido Bus Stop on the bus routes for Waseda University or Miyaderanishi, which can be boarded at the Kotesashi Station on the Seibu Ikebukuro Line.
