This square kilometre of rolling green hills has been turned into an open air museum to architecture, displaying more than 65 buildings and structures, mostly from the Meiji Period (1868 - 1912) in a tranquil lakeside setting. Most of these structures are wooden, which was the trend in this period, and why there is so little of it left to admire. Government buildings and the homes of officials are just an example of what has survived of this period and been relocated into the collection. Two Christian churches and the original façade of the Imperial Hotel designed by Frank Lloyd Wrght, in Tokyo, complete with some of the original furniture are some of the highlights.
