Overall, I thought this was a pretty good museum. It provides a look at the history of Tokyo, starting with the Edo period all the way to the current day. I would not suggest renting the audio guide since it just tells you exactly what...More

Very interesting and well-organized exposition! In the main hall there were large-scale models of Tokyo wooden bridge and kabuki theater, as well as smaller models of old-time Japanese houses! Illustrated books and colored engravings were also quite impressive to see in details. By the way,...More

I already visited the museum. The lockers are small, not suitable for a carry on. But they can store bigger luggage at the ticketing counter by the coin lockers they have a special room for that. 😉
