The museum is a realistic model of a few streets as they looked like during Edo period (a cat on a roof is included). You can enter the houses and touch everything. The best part - there were volunteering guides. One of them gave me...More

My girls (4&6) could not get enough of this museum—they loved exploring the town, opening drawers in every room, hiding from the “rainstorm” that periodically appeared, etc. etc. Honestly, one of the best museums I’ve seen for kids this age (and interesting for me as...More

This museum is complimentary to the Edo-Tokyo museum and as they are not far away I would recommend to combine the visit the same day. We also got a volunteer guide here and the experience was great. The museum is smaller than the Edo-Tokyo one...More

This museum re-creates life during the Edo period. Replica's of houses, inns,shops. You can walk and view each structure and guides are available to give you the sense of history and usage at that time period.

See what life in Tokyo was like more than two centuries ago. You can walk, see and touch Main Street in mid 1800 and feel the older Tokyo. There are helpful guides at strategic points, some speak English, to explain the tools used, the livelihood,...More

This place is a must for kids 5-10, other ages too, but that age group will definitely enjoy this place. The museum is basically a large room with a little town (a few houses only-not a scaled down version) where the visitors can walk through...More
