Tanto los amantes de la historia como los de la arquitectura quedarán encantados con el edificio de estilo contemporáneo que se apoya sobre estos pilares enormes e icónicos. Emplazado en un predio del tamaño de un estadio, un modelo del Nihonbashi (el principal puente de Japón) separa el lado feudal de Tokio (Edo) del moderno (desde 1868). En la parte de las exposiciones permanentes encontrarán documentos originales. Los aspectos más nostálgicos de la vida cotidiana están representados en escala y sin las limitaciones de los vidrios de contención. Las distintas representaciones de las formas de arte folclórico y artesanías le dan vida a las tradiciones culturales del país. No se pierdan la réplica del Castillo Edo y del Teatro Kabuki.

Ever wondered how Japanese houses and shops looked decades ago? Well, here is your chance to gain knowledge. Much of Tokyo's architectural heritage had been destroyed in the Great Kanto earthquake and the World War II bombings. In order to retrieve its past, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government established the Tatemono-en (open air architectural museum) as part of the Edo-Tokyo museum in 1993. The museum has 27 buildings (with plans for four more) that run along small streets and span architectural time-lines from the mid-Edo period through the mid-Showa. Do not miss the Tsunashima family's thatched-roof farmhouse, the old post box, the top of the watchtower from the Ueno Fire Station and the bricks from Ginza Brick Town. Walk through the streets and take history lessons! Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum closes every Monday (When Monday is a national holiday, closes on the following day.)
