Default Japan Tour: Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum

?????????

The Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum is a part of the excellent Edo-Tokyo Museum in the Ryogoku area of Japan's capital. Like Meiji Mura in Aichi Prefecture, the Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum is a collection of historic buildings, mainly from the Tokyo area, brought to a new location for preservation.


The majority of the structures are from the Meiji Period (1868-1912) but later and earlier buildings can also be found. The preserved displays include a koban (police box), a sento (public bath), a Tokyo street car, a photo studio, an opulent residence belonging to a member of the Mitsui family and a number of thatched farmhouses.
