Recommended for Japanese retro lovers. Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum.

The Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum was established in 1993 in Koganei City, Tokyo.

It is an open-air museum where historical buildings of high cultural value, which cannot be preserved on site, are relocated, restored, preserved and displayed, and passed on to the next generation as valuable cultural heritage.

It's a place where you can feel like you've slipped back in time to Japan's Edo period to Showa period.

( The Edo period is about 200 to 400 years ago. The Showa era is about 30 to 100 years ago in Japan. )

Many Ghibli fans visit this area because some of the locations were used as models for the film "Spirited Away" by Studio Ghibli, one of Japan's most famous animation companies.

If you are a fan of Japanese historical buildings and retro cityscapes, you should definitely visit this place.

Please check the official website for the latest information on the facility.
