  • From Central Japan International Airport take the musky further from Inuyama station per hour, and bus from Inuyama station in Meiji era village for about 30 minutes, 40 years or Buri visit. In the garden from 1-up to 5-divided in five main areas, between the area and the area is quite up and down the slope. Best to move between areas in SL, streetcar and bus if you have spare time. After listening to the explanation of the guided tour of the time looking at the exterior of the building, saw neatly into Interior, materials and exhibits during turning even displayed at the entrance to the building in full day is required. There is a restaurant and snack stands. Had such kind of food and drink is eating bread and rice ball of the convenience store, park benches are a lot so there. Display buildings inside the village of Hokkaido is better... But the building itself looks good on paper for the Meiji-Mura.

  • I asked Museum Meiji-Mura. Around again and at last heard from lightly passed over 15 years, so I heard from in the morning. Where the left 1/3 minutes from the Imperial Hotel main entrance, showcased around the village was closed at the time. And the history of each, as well as architecture was relocated to the village more than 60 landmarks to the attractions, culture, people who played there in the accomodation. Looked pretty fly going is a little bothered seeing very close-up all was not. Common cultural property of each over time would see to it that it is granted insufficient time is more than 60. I think of location is not available on this day, to major cultural building guides and guided tours is held on a regular basis, usually placed to show next time come the guided tour to good use like.

  • Meiji-Mura, has done many times since childhood is the first cherry blossom season. Hidden spots. Today is also the filming location for the morning Dora is famous. We recommend to staff, train ride over. I would use the shops so crowded and run the cherry blossom season is good.

  • The park locate in a great location. The nature is very nice. Amazing setting. Most buildings are fully furnished. Restaurants served good food, no overpriced. I recommend you to choices first then go go go.
  • Great place for adults and children alike. Good variety of architecture. The steam locomotive, streetcar, and bus are all options for travel within the park, and if you think you will use it many times, you should consider getting the unlimited ride pass.
  • This is a wonderful outdoor museum of a wide variety of Meiji Era buildings with good English translations of explanations. Further interesting information is available of particular buildings in guided tours ranging 15-30 minutes, however they are only offered in Japanese. These tours typically are offered many times a day between 11AM and 3PM. There is food and drink available on site, special seasonal events, and some buildings are available to rent for private functions.
  • Impressive Originally went there just to see Wright's Imperial Tokyo and got lost for hours in the end. Nowhere else you will find as many beautiful + accessible buildings so closely packed together. Was the highlight of my Japan trip.
  • So much to see, but not enough time. A must see to learn about a prosperous period of Japan.
