Japanese House Museum
The Kawasaki-City Japanese House Museum opened in 1967 as an outdoor museum with the purpose of preserving old Japanese houses in danger of rapidly disappearing. 25 structures from the 17th to 19th centuries were relocated here from around Japan, including typical historic houses in eastern Japan, a water mill, a boatmans cottage, an elevated grain storehouse (known as a Takakura) and a Kabuki stage. 18 of these structures have been designated as national or prefectural Important Cultural Properties. The main building exhibits folklore materials, which provides basic knowledge and information on the above houses.'
