Real Scarecrow Village

Oku-Yuki is famous for having more resident scarecrows than actual human residents!

Due to the 170 life-like scarecrows scattered about town, Oku-Yuki has earned the name “Real Scarecrow Village.”

Originally created as funny pranks by a local couple, these scarecrows have become so famous that “Real Scarecrow Village” is visited by tourists from all around Japan.

Even a few celebrities have visited.

It’s a bit creepy at night, so we recommend exploring during the day!
