  • Didn't expect in a public museum that is pretty awesome. Pretty big Edo city streets has been reproduced in the basement. Time by switching day, night, offers fine furnishings. How to guide, some had been available in many languages. And quite impressed with the study.

  • Near the temple there. Thinking comes easily, I stopped by after your 墓mairi. Old buildings were moved to the hotel? You can glimpse the Edo shitamachi atmosphere has been. Interesting because it puts it on the inside of the building

  • Small museum that recreates a village of the Edo period. I strongly suggest buying the English guide book for the maximum experience. Can be fun with kids (4 ish to 12 ish). Maybe 1 to 2 hours worth of things to do.
  • Fantastic little museum set away from the tourist spots. I was surprised to find the guide book was in English and a member of staff asked me if she could explain anything to me. It is well worth visiting - not only for the town they have set up with buildings you can enter, but also for their famous cat. Dog lovers have a treat waiting too...
  • Very cool little museum. A small recreation of an old Edo area neighborhood. Won't take you long but its good and interactive. You can go into the buildings and open drawers etc.
  • This museum make me remember and imagine the situation of tokugawa or edo era like in Game the Way Of Samurai or Tenchu. And of course Rurouni Kenshin anime. :)
  • Notice to lovers of the time Edo or to people interested in Japanese history, this Museum offers a re-enactment of a district of the capital in the 17th century. I was personally delighted by the atmosphere that emanates from the place. Everything is explorable (or almost) and guides will be always ready to give you a few details (in English for some).
