Museum of the Meiji Restoration, Kagoshima

(4/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Hop on a streetcar or a 1920s bus at Museum of the Meiji Restoration, a large open-air museum with many pavilions offering an insight into the unique story of Japan’s modernization. Hourly audio-visual presentations, colorfully dressed mannequins, and carefully restored interiors recreate the Meiji-period atmosphere of 1868. Several well-preserved buildings that were moved here, as well galleries showing sword techniques and animatronic Japanese reformers, set this well-organized and detailed museum apart from others. Located by the Kotsuki River, the museum sits nine minutes by foot from Kagoshima Chuo railway station, or three minutes from the nearest tram stop, Takamibashi.
