Here on this 7-hectare site bursting with seasonal flora you’ll find 30 Tokyo buildings from the early Edo period through the postwar period that have been relocated and restored for display.
The lifestyles and businesses of each associated time period are reproduced inside of the buildings.
There are also many spots on the grounds where you can take photos that look like you’ve traveled back in time.
There is also a book corner at the Visitor Center where you can browse to your heart’s content, learning about the characteristics and history of Japanese architecture.
Moreover, there is a museum shop, a restaurant, and a café where you can enjoy food and drinks inside of a retro building.

    把各地即將拆除的老舊房子移到這個地方來,裡面陳設營造出當時的生活真實狀態,能夠更了解日本早期時代的生活。

    特别喜欢日本的传统建筑,当然一定要来这个展出有30栋日本老建筑的江户东京建筑园来看看。果然是名不虚传,每一间建筑都好像能把人带到日本江户和昭和初期的年代,小酒馆、文具店、澡堂、仓库等建筑都好像是当年原封不动的样子。不由地对日本人珍惜传统建筑文化的精神而感动。听说宫崎骏大师的许多作品的创作灵感都来自这里。
