Museum Meiji-Mura

The Museum Meiji-Mura is a large-scale outdoor museum located on a hillside facing Lake Iruka near Nagoya in the Aichi Prefecture of Japan. More of a village than a traditional museum, Meiji Mura is home to 60 buildings from the Meiji era (1868-1912), a period that saw Japan open up to other influences after a period of isolation. This is reflected in the architecture of the buildings, which has a clear Western influence after builders adopted styles, techniques, and materials from the Western world.Throughout the village, visitors can wander around various buildings, such as houses, hospitals, theaters, and schools, taking a look inside and learning about the history and culture of Japan during this period. Particular buildings of interest include the entrance hall of Tokyo's old Imperial Hotel, Kyoto's St. Francis Xavier's Cathedral, Mie's prefectural office, and the former Kanazawa Prison. The Meiji-Mura Museum also has a bus that runs the length of the village, as well as a tram and a steam train.More

Kenroku-en Garden

Widely considered one of the most beautiful gardens in Japan, Kenroku-en Garden in Kanazawa began in the seventeenth century as a private garden for Kaga feudal lords. The garden first opened to the public in 1874 and was designated a National Site of Scenic Beauty in 1922 and upgraded to a National Site of Special Scenic Beauty in 1985.In traditional Chinese gardening, there are said to be six attributes that make up the ideal garden landscape. Kenroku-en translates to ‘garden of six attributes,’ claiming to incorporate spaciousness, seclusion, artifice, antiquity, water features and panoramas into this single green space.A 90-minute strolling course takes visitors past most of the park’s points of interest, including several ponds, an observation deck, a stone lantern, one of Japan’s oldest fountains and a couple of traditional tea houses. Each season brings a new look to the garden, with spring and its accompanying plum and cherry blossoms the most popular.More
