Japanese Village Museum (Ayutthaya-Thailand)
Ayutthaya used to be a real international city at its time and this museum is demonstrates it. Among many other nationalities, the Japanese stood out the most. They came during the reign of King Maha Thammarach in 1590s. There were so many of them that their settlement stretched for one kilometer along the Chao Phraya River. Throughot the history, various kings used Japanese as personal guards (samurais) and mercenaries to fight against the Burmese. The number of Japanese declined in 1633 due to Japan’s closing of borders for trade and migration. Still, Ayutthaya remained a trading and recruiting center, as well as an asylum. Not far from this place, there is a so-called Portuguese Village, also situated on Chao Phraya River.
