Edo-Tokyo Open-air Architectural Museum is an open-air museum offers you an opportunity to stop at old merchant houses, an old-style public bathhouse, etc., while enjoying a walk in the rich nature of Musashino.

A newly relocated building in the museum's west zone is House of George de Lalande.
Characterized by its slate mansard roof and clapboard siding, it is a Western-style wooden house originally built in Shinanomachi, Shinjuku-ku.
The ground floor is known to have been designed by Jiro Kitao, the meteorologist and physicist of the Meiji Era (1868 - 1912), as his private residence.
The single-story structure was enlarged to become three-story wooden building around 1910 by the German architect George de Lalande.
