Go back in time to explore the dizzying architectural boom of Japan’s Meiji Period (1867-1912).
The opening up of Japan’s interns during the Meiji Period (1867-1912) saw the country change dramatically as Western thought influenced architecture, industry, and society. Meiji Mura is an open-air museum displaying the styles of those heady days. Some sixty historic buildings have been moved and rebuilt on the 247-acre park; the most important is the main entrance and lobby of Frank Lloyd Wright’s historic Imperial Hotel. The museum includes its own steam train and is set against the hills of Lake Iruka.
