Meiji-mura (Meiji Village) was opened on March 18, 1965, as an open-air museum preserving and exhibiting Japanese architecture of the Meiji Period (1868-1912). The Village occupies an area of 1,000,000 m2, where currently over sixty-eight Meiji buildings have been relocated and reconstructed, including 12 nationally important cultural properties (of which, two are historical materials). You can sense the Meiji Period’s atmosphere through the kinetic exhibition of steam locomotives (SL) and Kyoto City trains, a cocktail bar featuring “Denki Bran,” Japan’s first cocktail, popular in the Meiji Period, and restaurants with menus based on Meiji Period recipes.
