Edo-Tokyo Open Air Museumarc-museum1-18

The Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum is located in the western suburbs of Tokyo. In the western part of Koganei Park, Koganei City, 25 minutes from Shinjuku. It exhibits a range of historic buildings from the Tokyo area. All of the buildings were either relocated or reconstructed here in order to preserve a chapter of architectural history, which has been almost completely lost over the years in fires, earthquakes, wars and city redevelopment.

Most of the buildings exhibited are from the Meiji Period (1868-1912) or more recent times. Included among the exhibits, a politician’s elegant former residence, a farm house, a public bathhouse, various shops and a police box.

How to get there
From Shinjuku, take either the Seibu Shinjuku Line to Hana-Koganei Station or JR Chuo Line to Musashi-Koganei Station. From either station, the park is a 5-10 minute bus ride or 15-30 minute walk.

Open: 9:30 am to 5:30 pm (until 4:30 pm from October to March)
Admission ends 30 minutes before closing
Closed: Mondays (except on a national holiday)
