4. Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum is an outdoor museum featuring historical structures with high cultural significance which have been moved to the museum from their original sites, recreated and preserved for exhibit. Walk down streets lined with colorful and intriguing buildings which evoke an atmosphere just like in a Ghibli film. Take a stroll and think about which Ghibli film each building could appear in. (See Remarks No. 10)
