Special night opening and lighting of autumn leaves
24 -26 November 2017
Edo-Tokyo Open-Air Architectural Museum
The Edo-Tokyo Open-Air Architectural Museum is an outdoor architectural garden located inside the spacious Koganei Park (about 80 hectares) in western Tokyo. The museum, often called the “Tatemono-en” by the shortened Japanese name, is a great place to learn about the pre-modern and modern architecture that existed in Tokyo. A number of historic buildings have been restored and exhibited here, and some of them are said to have served as models for Hayao Miyazaki’s animated film “Spirited Away”.

The annual lighting event to be held during the fall foliage season is a great occasion to visit this excellent place. The evening landscape will be wrapped in a very special atmosphere, quite different from the daytime, as the trees are lit up gently, along with the historic houses and buildings on display.
During the three-day event, a fire will be built in the fireplace at some of the old houses. Outside, at a corner of the garden, numerous candles will be lit. Hot drinks and snacks will also be available (the fees for food and drink extra).
