  • 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.
