The Openair Museum is a field of education and study. Furthermore, it is an important touristattraction in the area. It will be intellectual pleasure and impression for those who visit there bybeing run by the local people on their independent.In the old tracks of Kansai Railway Daibutsu Line, the so-called ‘Daibutsu Railway’, whichoperated in the Meiji Era, there are multiple remains. In this paper, we propose that these remainsof Daibutsu Railway are treated as the first Openair Museum in Nara City.The Ichijodori St., leading to Tegaimon Gate where people visited to Daibutsuden in TodaijiTemple from Daibutsu Station on the Daibutsu Line, is called ‘Sahoji’, and it is the Historic Road.Sahoji is the street where poets who connected with Manyoshu came and went, and from thisstreet we can catch the distant view of Wakakusayama Hill behind Todaiji Temple. And ‘KyokaidoRoad’, where passes in front of Tegaimon Gate, is the road connecting Kyoto and Nara, andit was said the entrance to the Ise Road leading to Ise Shrine. Old houses of merchants whichhave been managed since the Meiji Era and former famous inn’s traces, are in line along theKyokaido Road. Regarding the above three areas, ‘Daibutsu Railway’, ‘Sahoji’ and ‘KyokaidoRoad’, we will verify the systematization of the Openair Museum. One of the common themes ofthe three Openair Museums which are adjacent, is sightseeing in Meiji Era. As an example, wewill examine the journey of the famous poet, Shiki Masaoka.By connecting these Openair Museums, the theme will be further derived. And we suggestthat it will be useful for revitalizing the region eventually.
