An open-air museum where historical buildings having high cultural value are restored and displayed on a large site.
This open-air museum opened in 1993. Historically valuable buildings that were difficult to preserve where they stood were brought here and reassembled. There are approximately 30 restored buildings in the vast 70-thousand-square-meter site. With buildings from the Edo to early-Showa periods, some with traditional thatched roofs and others with a historic atmosphere, it is if you have gone back in time. The museum aims to preserve these buildings so that future generations can appreciate their precious cultural heritage. A five-minute bus trip from the North Exit of Musashi-Koganei Station on the JR Chuo Main Line.
