Funded by former chairmen of Meitetsu (the private railway which virtually CONTROLS Nagoya), this place preserves so many important things from the Meiji era which makes it a must-go.

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Imperial Hotel was our target here. We arrived at the gate before opening time. Once we exchanged our voucher for our entrance and retro bus tickets, we hopped the first bus to the Hotel from the station (a ride of about 20 minutes). Doing so meant we got to photograph the exterior and much of the interior... More

It's slightly out of the way, but nevertheless a worthwhile day outing if you are in the Nagoya area. Getting there was quite easy as many websites describe the train and bus arrangements adequately. The park itself was well laid out - great for walking during the cooler months. Beautiful buildings / replicas and a beautiful view of the lake.... More

You can see about 60 architectures in the era of Meiji era. This village has lots of paths shaded by trees on which you can get around easily. It'll take half a day to walk around.

I was absolutely thrilled when I came upon this majestic museum. This place given to my friend and I as a suggested place to go and learn more about the Meiji era (a.k.a. Meiji Restoration). I wanted to see this place so bad because I love the tales of the Meiji era and also one of my favorite animes "Rurouni... More

Great place to spend the whole day learning about history while enjoying the beautiful landscape. Restaurants were reasonably priced.

We were there on weekday, not crowded. Some students were there for field trip. We spent half day there, not enough. The place is huge! Well-preserved buildings from the Meiji-period were moved and reconstructed there. If you love historical/architectural buildings, you will love this place. The most fun part was the steam train, streetcar, and a 1920s bus. You can... More

Though the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo no longer stands (the FLW original), the Japanese government saved the entire lobby and moved it, brick by brick, to this location. And what a splendid lobby and location they are! Many other wonderful buildings to see, but having tea or lunch in the original lobby is a transcendent experience for architecture--- and FLW...
