  • Traditional but ‘modern’ Japanese house built in 1919. Enormous house for a family, nested in a peaceful garden. The property is not particularly beautiful, but it gives an interesting glimpse of life...  more »
  • Daikan-Yama station in Meguro district located located approximately 3 minutes on foot. Walking from Naka-Meguro magistrate yamakata plane found by accident and was inadvertently enter's low entrance fee of 100 yen. Building the net Japan House, plenty of room. Between the beautiful grain, Cedar is the best. I thought it was good to enjoy in every season, each season the flowers in the garden. Because it was a warm cheerful, carelessly on the veranda lie want now.

  • Please don't touch anything exhibited in this house. Please don't sit here. Please don't use this toilet. Please don't put up so many "please don't" signs.
  • A must-see in Tokyo, often forgotten by guidebooks. This is a beautiful Japanese property from the Taisho era (~1910), with traditional architecture, tatami rooms and a big garden. You can seat in the house next to the garden to read or just enjoy the atmosphere. I have been there every year, in all seasons. The entrance is cheap, and they even offer a yearly pass. The place is accessible by walk from either Naka-Meguro, Daikanyama, or Ebisu station.
  • For $1 entry, it’s just about the best deal in Tokyo. Get a glimpse into how life before the stylish cafes and trendy Tokyo. You’ll be surprised how quiet and serene this place is even though it’s just off a main shopping strip.
  • Interesting to look around a pre-war traditional property and definitely worth the minimal entrance fee. We visited in the evening and the light on the garden was stunning. Pleasant shopping area between here and Ebisu.
  • It's a begin 20th century house style. It's very impressive to see how many rooms they had. It's à big house with one upstair. It gives for our western culture, How the houses could be at this period. We can understand why with the big earthquake so many house was burn and distroy. The garden are traditional too and very peaceful. Take a moment to go out from shibuya and go their. 100¥ fee
