    Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum

    The Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum is still very unknown to foreign tourists and so it is a spot which is not too crowded. At the seven hectares area you can find a lot of historical houses, mostly coming from Edo period, Meiji period and the Tokyo after the Second World War. The museum has different zones which all has its highlights. Especially the East Zone with the Shitamachi-naka street is very interesting having a lot of unique buildings presenting old kind of shops. Also the public bath is impressive. Many houses have furniture inside or you at least can enjoy the architecture inside. Note you should wear shoes you can easily take off and get in again, because you have to take them off to enter the houses. Information papers are available in Japanese and English at all houses and staff will help you, too. I think the Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum is really worth a visit, especially while spring time, because at Koganei Park you can find a lot of plum and cherry trees. The museum is located inside the Koganei Park and is easy reachable with a five minutes bus ride from Musashi-Koganei station. It is opened from 9:30 to 17:30 (April – September) or from 9:30 to 16:30 (October – March), however Monday is closing day. The entry fee is ¥ 400 for adults.
