Part of a Japanese compound in the past, the Japanese Village or “Baan Yippon” is an exhibition of videos and artefacts, displaying the lifestyle and history of Japanese emigrants in Ayutthaya. The village is a lens into the dynamic and rich history of Ayutthaya's migrants. It is a haven for history buffs and photographers alike. Now, an everlasting symbol of the 130 (and more) years of diplomatic friendship between the nations of Japan and Thailand, the Japanese Village is a must inclusion in every Ayutthaya travel itinerary.
When the Japanese emperor granted permission for the Japanese to trade with Thailand, a lot of traders came to Ayutthaya looking for opportunities. Like all other foreign settlers, the Ayutthayan king gave them land to settle outside the city boundaries. The Japanese Village now serves as a tribute to the lasting friendship between the two countries and continued bilateral relations. An underrated site, the Japanese Village is a promising display of exhibits, providing interesting accounts of the Ayutthayan economic history.
