Zoshigaya Missionary Museum

Museums Zoshigaya Free

Few homes of early foreign Tokyo residents have escaped the ravages of time. This one, built in 1907, belonged to American missionary JM McCaleb. When it was threatened with demolition a few years ago, residents campaigned to save it. The white clapboard building is strangely displaced, time-warped from old America to the hubbub of modern Tokyo.
