One of my favourite open air park museums, feels like a little brother of my best museum in the country, Meiji-mura, the Meiji Village Museum in Aichi Prefecture, to me. As the name of the museum says, there’re quite a few houses and buildings of significance, as well as historical architectures and structural objects, mainly from late Edo to early Showa era, moved and reconstructed as exhibits in this “park” in huge Tokyo municipal Koganei Park. Just walking in the park museum, you’ll feel its preciousness and magnificence, and vast ongoing efforts of the people concerned to preserve those artefacts. Among many, my special recommendations go to the café restaurant open in the Georg de Lalande residence (completed in 1910) in the West Zone, and also the whole downtown street building exhibits and a streetcar in the East Zone. The restaurants and events can be little crowded and time restraint sometimes, so, the time schedule checking and time allocation may be wise.

Fantastic place! It’s a bit far from the station, but totally worth the long walk. You can also use the bus though. There are many places to see such as houses from different eras, all sorts of shops and a sento, and all so admiringly well preserved. There’s also a really nice udon place when you get hungry and it tastes so good. There’s a cafe too, but I didn’t like it much. One of the best thing about this place is that it’s not crowded, so you can properly enjoy everything it offers.

A very well-organised open air museum that shows houses, shops, vehicles and public bath from the Edo period. Lots of things to see and experience. Suitable for all age, groups and individuals. Some staff members can speak English. They are very helpful. Visitors will also find a a shop, a cafe and an udon restaurant in different parts of the museum.

I've been to Japan many times but this has been one of my favorite places! If you are interested in Japanese history, it's a must visit. You are able to enter many of the rooms of homes dating back to the mid-late Edo period, it was fascinating! I spent 3 hours here and loved every minute of the exploring. There are 2 places to eat as well. The staff were all very nice and helpful. I felt like I took a step back in time, 10/10 recommend! I bought my ticket there with no wait.

Super cute museum, you can spend 3 hours here or more and time flies cause there are lots to see. I recommend to go during autumn or winter since summer might be too hot for an open air museum. It’s inside a park so it’s really chill and family oriented.
