The Meiji period (1868-1912) saw Japan open up to the West, a policy that manifested itself most notably in architecture. The Meiji-mura, the well-named, boasts a vast array of the diverse buildings constructed during this period, from Victorian houses and Gothic churches to institutional buildings. This open-air museum stands in a vast park with a lake.
