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.
