If you have any interest in architecture and design or history you will love Meiji Mura. Allow at least three hours to have a good look around and don't miss the Imperial Hotel lobby or St Francis Xavier church. But there's so much more. Be...More

We were excited to see the house from Hilo, plantation days. Other than that it was a long way to get to this Meiji-mura, it was hot to walk around and we lost interest quickly. Those people who like this era would possibly think differently.

Go only if you are interested in old buildings. I personally didn't find any of the buildings impressive. The place is not very big. The map given out with the ticket shows that it is only about 1.2 km from the main gate to the...More

The museum, or rather a park, has collected many ancient historical buildings including Catholic Churches, the part of Emporium Hotel, a railway station and locomotives and so on, displaying them along a pass with beautiful autumn scenery. It’s a pleasant and educational trip.

Located close to Nagoya it takes at least four hours to get here from Tokyo. The website explains well which trains and buses to take. I wanted to see Frank Lloyd Wright’s Imperial Hotel, or at least what’s left of it. The lobby is displayed...More

They are next to each other. Follow the signage in the JR station. You'll be led to exit the JR station building and immediately go down the stairs of the adjoining building to the Meitetsu Nagoya stn.
