Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum 江戸東京たてもの園

3-7-1 Sakura-cho, Koganei-shi, Tokyo

A museum for architecture aficionados and history buffs

Located in western Tokyo, the Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum offers an off-the-beaten-track look at Japanese culture. The museum was established in 1993 by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government. Despite its young age, the architectural park serves as a cultural center with centuries-old buildings relocated and preserved on its grounds. Spend hours exploring historical buildings and discover the cultural heritage behind their walls.

In addition to architectural ruins and restored buildings, the museum also hosts seasonal events that bring traditional Japanese history to life. When you need a break, visit one of the on-site eateries or take a look in the museum shop.
