Experience History at Edo-Tokyo Open-air Architectural Museum
The Edo-Tokyo Open-air Architectural Museum was established in 1993 by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, displaying various works of architecture relocated from all over Tokyo. The best part? You can see everything from inside the constructions!
The museum exhibits a range of historic buildings from the Tokyo area. The buildings were relocated or reconstructed here in order to preserve a chapter of architectural history, which has been almost completely lost in fires, earthquakes, wars and city redevelopment.
The size of the museum is approximately seven hectares and is divided into three zones: West, Central, and East.
In the West Zone, a wide variety of architectural styles are displayed, from houses built in the Edo Period to modern architecture. The house of the prominent Japanese architect Kunio Mayekawais a highlight.
