Lovely little museum, out of the bustling centre, with recreation of Edo-period village. Staff extremely helpful, informative and friendly.

The south eastern area of Koto Ward was known as the Fukagawa district in the Edo era, and was the eastern peripheral of Edo. As part of our half day excursion to Koto Ward, we visited this museum close to Kiyosumi-shirakawa on the Ooedo Line. Fukagawa Edo Museum (Fukagawa-shiryoukan) opened in 1986 and displays a full-scale replica of the township of Fukagawa in the late Edo era. It was fun slipping back in time to visit the houses and shops as they were in 1840. The normal admission fee is 400 yen but there is a concession price of 300 yen if you show your one day metro travelcard.

A life-sized reconstruction of a small village filled with articles of daily living. We were fortunate to be found by a guide, Yukiko, who demonstrated how everything worked - lamps and clothes and stoves and kimono and umbrellas and straw raincoats. Every house had a story. It was a really enjoyable and educational 90 minutes in a quiet charming neighborhood. I recommend you visit the Kayosumi gardens nearby afterward.

We stumbled upon this fantastic museum by accident as we were heading back to the Metro after visiting a nearby Sumo stable, Oguruma-beya. The entry price is only 400 yen, it's worth every penny. Inside they have re-created an Edo (old Tokyo) town, the attention to detail is magnificent. There are several English speaking guides who are all too happy to show you around (no charge) and I'd recommend this; you'll see all the small details you would miss on your own, plus learn a lot of history. Special thanks to our wonderful guide Nagano Higachi; you are very special lady and we enjoyed our time with you very much x

My friend invited me to visit this small museum in Fukagawa, Tokyo last summer. I love history, but my knowledge is mostly from books. I was very excited to experience "Edo" history in this replica town. The museum is relatively small but I spent 3 hours. Everything is so detailed, really fun to see. Volunteers are very knowledgable and friendly, also fun to talk to them. There are several foreign language speaker. The museum is indoor, so it is nice to visit even rainy day which is common in Japan.
