The Japanese House

The Japanese House at the Boston Children’s Museum (BCM) is a well-preserved machiya, a unique architectural form from Japan. Kyoto machiya are now on the World Monument Fund Watch List and the focus of preservation efforts in Japan. The Japanese House website provides access to the Boston Children’s Museum’s rich array of resources for the study, interpretation, and preservation of The Japanese House.
