Japanese House

Yokoso – welcome!

Stand on the Kyoto street and peek into Kyo-no-Machiya, an old hose which was transported from the city of Kyoto, Boston’s sister city.

Check out the December displays that talk about Toshikoshi soba, year-crossing noodle. After spending a very busy month of December in preparation for the new year, people often enjoy eating soba noodles with friends and families on the New Year's Eve. With Toshikoshi soba, say goodbye to all the bad things that happened in the year and welcome the new year with good luck!

Enjoy the art gallery show “Connect Connect Puzzle”, created by the students of Tohoku University of Art and Design.


*Currently, visitors cannot enter the house but are encouraged to peek inside the house and hear some of the many stories about this special house shared by our trained and knowledgeable staff."
