  • The price of admission was 600 yen or 300 for people over age 65. The small replicas of Edo towns were brilliant. Excellent overview of culture and history. 3 floors of exhibits. Small display on WW2,...  more »
  • Edo Mania is a must see. It was a pretty respectable and detailed model. Especially good is a minute explanation polite explanation of the volunteer of the commentary. The scale from the eyes, this thing.

  • It was rare for a Japan museum to take pictures of the hotel. Because the volunteer guide came and explained it politely, it became study.

  • Really cool museum. Amazing concept with pretty much a whole historic village housed indoors in a huge modern building. This museum was very popular with Japanese locals and we were amongst very few tourists. Attention to detail was very good and we learnt a lot about Edo era history.
  • Best museum ever!! Lovely guide who walks you through the entire replica village to explain everything.. and you can touch and play with all the props too! The lighting and sound design change every 15mins to replicate the time in day and seasons. Mind blowing attention to detail. Great value for what you pay.
  • Such a cool idea thing to see. We were the only foreigners here. An awesome small museum that replicates what the old Japan used to be like and how people used to live approx 200 years ago. The guides were very nice and did the best they could to explain things to us in decent English.
  • Great experience. Not as impressive as Tokyo Edo, as it is quite small and as nothing is translated in English. That being said, one thing is great. There are a lot of guides (some of them speak English) that help you understand life during Edo. They are adorable and make the visit an unforgettable experience for a very low price.
  • This is one of a best museum to know daily life in "Edo period". You will time travel to that era.
