The Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum (Edo-Tokyo Tatemono-en) is currently helding a special exhibition about the architecture in Studio Ghibli movies. The exhibition features numerous artworks and a few miniature recreations of some famous Ghibli buildings. Although lining up to see drawings on the wall is not my piece of cake, the replicas were nice to look at. The bathhouse from Spirited Away was definitely the most impressive. Pictures were not allowed, so I can only show the poster of the event :
The 400 yens ticket price includes the regular museum as well. The museum is actually real Japanese houses and buildings from different eras. Visitors can enter and see how people used to live. It’s very nice and well made, and I thought it was actually more interesting than the Ghibli exhibition.
The museum is located inside a park, and there was a kind of festival on that day. We had the chance to see the lion’s dance (獅子舞) and other various performances, as well as eating snacks from the numerous booths.
