  • This is the Museum recreated the city of Edo. To go around and look at a much larger scale, but just the right size;

  • I walked from the subway kiyosumi-Shirakawa station. Did not feel so much distance was 7.8 minutes in time, but along the way, and tombstone shop, temples and a unique toilet and walking while looking at them. Entrance fee is 400 Yen. Talk about whether or not you should go look at not too wide, even paying the admission fee in fact, went inside and was worth the admission more than 400 Yen. Lined the streets as a time-travel trip to the volunteers in English and some foreigners.

  • This museum is a great, quiet spot that recreates a life size Edo village with amazing detail. You can explore inside the houses, and try out some of the tools they used. There are free English speaking volunteer guides who have incredibly impressive knowledge about every aspect of the houses, from the Edo-era makeup to the construction of the houses.
  • It was very interesting to be submerged in the history of Tokyo. Many anecdotes about Tokyo as the capital of Edo era and its modern transformation were also exciting to learn about. However, some of the comments about its story during the World Wars were ridiculously ignorant about the role of the Japanese military regime who actually fuelled the violence and imperialist desire across the globe.
  • Fantastic copy of Edo period. And great English speaking guides and staff.
  • This may be a small museum but quite enjoyable with the reconstruction of the typical streets of Tokyo which was called Edo until the middle of the 19th century. Both Japanese and English speaking guides are available. Highly recommended.
  • Been to this little museum twice; once on 2000 before everyone had smart phones and we got lost finding it. Got lost looking for it again in 2018 not having access to Wi-Fi. However, once found, this is a little gem of a museum is worth experiencing: an Edo period neighborhood in Fukugawa has been recreated. You can enter the merchants’ stores and houses and get a feel for what is was like to live in Edo times.
