Museum! The Japanese House was transported piece by piece from Kyoto in 1979 to mark the 20th anniversary of Boston and Kyoto’s sister city relationship. Walk down the street, take off your shoes, and step into this authentic two-story silk merchant’s home. Families can explore every corner of the fully-equipped home, reconstructed in Boston by Japanese carpenters. Japanese family life, customs, ceremonies, art, architecture, and seasonal events are all highlighted in the fully functional 100-year-old house inside the Museum.
