The Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum is a collection of homes, shops and offices from the early 20th century and moved there from around the area.

Very cool:

Like many public facilities today, the Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum runs programs, including the “old life experience” for local primary school children. It also has an extended staff of volunteers who welcome visitors with explanations of the buildings, teach crafts such as pinwheel making to children, and entertain with kamishibai picture theater performances on weekends.
