Meiji Mura

Just outside Inuyama is a fascinating little theme-park, I guess you could call it, called Meiji Mura. It was opened back in 1965 with the aim of preserving buildings from the  Meiji period (1868-1912), a period of rapid industrial development. Various buildings were collected from all around Japan and carefully restored on this site.
