Overview
More
Beautifully located on a hillside facing Lake Iruka, it occupies an area of 1,000,000m2, where currently over sixty Meiji buildings have been brought and rebuilt. On display inside the buildings are furniture and other items of interst, objects of reference related to the respective buildings, and temporary exhibitions of historic materials as occasions call. The Meiji-mura offers the Japanese people a place of social education, where they can discover and have first-hand contact with the form and spirit of the Meiji period. We also believe that the Meiji-mura, as an evidence of East-West cultural exchange, can be helpful to enhance mutual understanding between the peoples of Japan and other countries of the world.

If you have any interest in architecture and design or history you will love Meiji Mura. Allow at least three hours to have a good look around and don't miss the Imperial Hotel lobby or St Francis Xavier church. But there's so much more. Be...More

We were excited to see the house from Hilo, plantation days. Other than that it was a long way to get to this Meiji-mura, it was hot to walk around and we lost interest quickly. Those people who like this era would possibly think differently.

A nice and big collection of Meiji Era buildings (some including original furniture), old vehicles and also street furniture. It felt like a small time travel. English information was a little bit limited but we still enjoyed walking around. If you really want to see...More

The museum, or rather a park, has collected many ancient historical buildings including Catholic Churches, the part of Emporium Hotel, a railway station and locomotives and so on, displaying them along a pass with beautiful autumn scenery. It’s a pleasant and educational trip.

They are next to each other. Follow the signage in the JR station. You'll be led to exit the JR station building and immediately go down the stairs of the adjoining building to the Meitetsu Nagoya stn.
