    小金井公園の敷地内にある野外博物館。江戸時代から明治・大正時代の面影を遺す建物を移築し、保存することにより、その時代の建物の特徴や暮らしを身近に体験することが出来ます。都心から1時間程度で行けるところにあるため、気軽に行くことが出来ます。昔ながらの家屋や古民家が好き、そこにいるとホッとする、という、日頃のコンクリートジャングルに囲まれた生活の中で疲れを感じた人が行くには最適のところではないかと思います。
    必ずしも、囲炉裏のある古民家だけ、というわけではなく、明治以降の近代化に伴って取り入れた洋式の家具・調度品、和洋折衷の装飾品もあり、時代の流れに伴った建築の変遷も見ることが出来ます。

    家だけでなく、昔懐かしの路面電車やボンネットの車も屋外展示されており、また季節ならではのイベントも盛り沢山であるため、大人だけでなく、お子さんも十分に楽しむことが出来ると思います。

    It's an open-air museum located in the grounds of Koganei Park. By relocating and preserving buildings that still retain aspects of the Edo period through the Meiji and Taisho periods, visitors can experience the characteristics of the buildings and the lifestyle of those times. It takes only about an hour to get there from the central of Tokyo, so it is easy to visit. If you like old-fashioned houses and old folk houses, or feel relieved when you are there, this is the perfect place for you to go if you feel tired from the hustle and bustle of daily life in the city.
    Not only old houses with sunken hearths, but also Western-style furniture and furnishings introduced with the modernization after the Meiji era, as well as ornaments that blend Japanese and Western styles, allow visitors to see the changes in architecture that accompanied the flow of the times.

    Not only houses, but also old-fashioned streetcars and hood cars are exhibited outside, and there are many seasonal events, so not only adults but also children can enjoy themselves.

    My family have a dog. We came here to make our dogs play. There is a big dog run. Our dog was very pleased. Here is the shade of the tree. Even with the sunshine we are safe.

    This park is wonderful for biking, running, walking and also laying on the grass with a book. There is so much green grass which is a rarity in Tokyo, so it's a refreshing place!

    Many visitors in Tokyo chose to hit the shrines on the tourist circuit. But missing out on the smaller, local shrines is limiting. The guidebooks don't cover "little" places like Nukui Shrine. This is lucky for those who love serenity. A trip to Nukui will likely end in a contemplative hour sitting in front of the shrine or around its idyllic pond. The best time to visit is in late fall (early December) or in the middle of the spring (April - May) as the foliage is what makes this shrine so special. If you are looking for a traditional shrine without any crowd, this might be the place.

    With a place where to see people send arrows in target prictice. I am getting it is a religious thing or not? Musashikoganei and at a certain extend Tachikawa are really religious places. Lots of Temples and Shrines of various religions.

    So to say, the Koganei Water access is a "not For Free" one. You have to pay something to have the key to let the water go.
    People come in bicycle in a hurry, before dinner or lunch.
    The interesting thing here is that, this water have legend.
    Some couple of hundred years before a young girl had a strong skin disease.
    Here face was recovered by horrible spots....
    Willing to marry, she go to the temple. There they said to come here to drink and put some water on here face. That's what she did. Here illness vanished.

    There are a lot of textile machines, silk history in japan. If there is curator, they demonstrate the textile machine.
    And you will see the starting point of toyota and nissan.

    Very small and not the best in winter (not many plum trees), but if you have free time around Musashi koganei station and want to stroll consider it. 15 minutes from the station.

    If you are a Japanese food enthusiast or have read and liked the book “Good Food from a Japanese Temple” by Soie Yonoda, you will like the meal at Sanko-in.

    I loved it!

    Note that they do not serve tourist food! But all vegetable, seasonal, served and prepared kaiseki style. If you think tonkatsu, omoniyaki and takoyaki are typical Japanese meals, then this place might not be for you.

    The sophisticated, but small menu varies with the seasons. Despite the apparent small portions, there was enough to satisfy even a greedy person, like me.

    Sanko-in is an easy 1 hour from central Tokyo. But nearby is the amazing Architectural Museum, which is a nice walk or a few stops on the Cho Line. Plus there is the Ghibli Museum (book months in advance for that!) which is not far either. So the trip west could well fill a day with great variety.
