Create an itinerary including Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum
Wander the green fields of Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum, peppered with a range of historic structures that give a sense of traditional Japanese design. Over the years, Tokyo has lost many prized examples of its idiosyncratic architectural accomplishments to cataclysms, but across this 7 hectare (17 acre) park you'll have the chance to inspect some of these historic building styles in detail, inside and out. The variety of buildings salvaged and relocated from the city includes everything from upper-class homes, pre-war shops, and public baths to Western-style buildings of the Meiji period. Notably, this evocative and comprehensive museum provided visionary animation director Hayao Miyazaki with inspiration while working on his masterpiece "Spirited Away."

  • 小金井公園の敷地内にある野外博物館。江戸時代から明治・大正時代の面影を遺す建物を移築し、保存することにより、その時代の建物の特徴や暮らしを身近に体験することが出来ます。都心から1時間程度で行けるところにあるため、気軽に行くことが出来ます。昔ながらの家屋や古民家が好き、そこにいるとホッとする、という、日頃のコンクリートジャングルに囲まれた生活の中で疲れを感じた人が行くには最適のところではないかと思い...  more

  • A pleasant place to spend some time while also enjoying Kogane Park, though if you're only in Tokyo for a week I couldn't recommend it above other options. Current restricted ticket site only available in Japanese.
  • Beautiful historical buildings next to a huge park. One gets a glimpse of what it was like to live in those houses during EDO period. 400¥ pays out for for one visits some sort of art objects. Let your imagination tell you what kind of stories are hidden within those beautifully made wooden walls. Also there is a nice cafe and udon place to rest.
