The museum was established to preserve or reconstruct many of the old buildings which were originally located in the capital, but have been moved to the museum or lost to the many disasters Tokyo has suffered over the centuries. The grounds are split into three zones: private houses, buildings of historical value, and downtown Tokyo.
