I didnt know too much about the Edo-culture before. This museum gives you an insight. Its ideal for a quick stop if you are in the area. I was on my way to the Museum of contemporary art(which I recomend too) and discovered this one by chance. Othervise there is notmuch around.

This is a small museum that focuses on what it was like to live in the Fukagawa area during Edo times. Basically it is a big room that has a reconstruction of the town during this time including houses, vegetable stores and even the public toilet. There are English speaking guides who will give you even more information or you... More

If you are into history and want to know more about the way people lived in Japan, Edo centuries ago, this is very interesting and educational place that you benefit from when travelling around Japan. Good to have an English speaking guide, almost essential. There are volunteers ready to take us around.

This is my favorite experience in Japan so far. Away from the madness, step inside a peaceful recreation of a Edo period village. We were lucky to get an English speaking guide to show us through. It took about an hour which was perfect with our three year old in tow.

Loved this museum. Again a small one hidden away, but well worth the effort! There is an Edo town inside complete with a traditional boat floating on water. The attention to detail is very good. In addition there were some videos playing of artisans making their wares which I found very interesting. On the down side, most of it was... More

This was a great museum showing the edo era history and daily life of edo period people. We visited on the recommendation of some friends and were not disappointed! Our English speaking volunteer guide was fabulous and very, very informative. Our visit really gave us a sense of 'old' Tokyo, and was one of the most enjoyable museums we have... More

This museum is one large warehouse room that is intended to give you the experience of walking through Fukagawa in the 1840's. There are several buildings furnished to represent homes and shops. You can walk in the buildings and touch everything so it's great for kids. The room lighting slowly changes to represent different times of day. While it's interesting,... More
