Reviewed:2016/11/07 Shame that there is not an English guide
I was taken here by my hosts. Luckily, I had a translator in Hebrew and English....cos the whole thing is written in Japanese and the guide gave the talk in Japanese.

The place is a wonder...and...
Reviewed:2016/04/16 It seems I expected too much...
The museum requires admission fee and reservation.
But they usually offer the free admission day twice a month.
We don't have to make a reservation at the day.

          Aichi Main Areas


          Aichi is a prefecture of great natural beauty with Nagoya city at its heart, a busy hub home to a labyrinth of underground shops and the 17th-century Nagoya Castle. Castles are easy to find in this history-rich prefecture, but the highlight for history buffs has to be the Museum Meiji-mura, where preserved buildings from the turn of the 20th century are displayed in all their grandeur in an outdoor museum.
