    Arrow A few little-known sights in Tokyo

    Today, I went to the Nihon Minka-en in Kawasaki. It's an open-air folk museum gathering 23 traditional Edo-period houses from all over Japan. The wooden construction were dismantled and reassembled to their present location in Mukogaoka and are now classified as national treasure. If you are interested in Japanese architecture or history, it's a must see as it is the only one around Tokyo. Besides, traditional thatch-roof houses are few and far between nowadays.

    To get there, take the Odakyu line from Shinjuku, till Mukogaoka yuen (about 25min, 240yen). Take the South exit and walk about 10min straight in front of the station (passing the Daiei department store). The entrance is 500yen.
