  • It is located in kiyosumi-Shirakawa, Koto-ku Fukagawa Edo Museum. The streets of Edo period to reproduce. You can see the landscape seen in historical dramas for television, such as row houses or sushi shop.

  • Hotel demonstrates life of commoners during the Edo period. And, of the family-friendly setting, is very stiff. And neatly reproduced the grooves of the back alley, was made very well.

  • 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).
