Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum
An Open-Air Museum Where Historical Buildings from the Edo through Showa Periods are Relocated, Restored, and Displayed
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.
Enjoy the atmosphere of shitamachi areas in the East Zone, which features old merchant houses, public bathhouses, and izakaya.
Houses of various architectural styles are lined up in the West Zone, including retro-modern buildings from the Showa and Taisho eras and thatched roof houses from the Edo period.
The restaurant “Kura” offers customers a chance to enjoy handmade udon noodles made the traditional way of the Musashino area, where the museum is located.
The museum’s mascot character, “Edomaru,” was created by director Hayao Miyazaki and is featured on original items for sale in the museum shop.
