Relatively speaking, this part of the city is much less popular than the city center. But if you are in the area, this museum is a must do and represented a much-appreciated change of pace during my trip to Tokyo. As others have mentioned, the...More

The museum is a short walk from the Fukugawa Fudodo, making it a great oportunity to visit two attractions on the same day. For a small fee, you can experience what a Edo period village might have looked like. The museum is so detailed and...More

The museum is a realistic model of a few streets as they looked like during Edo period (a cat on a roof is included). You can enter the houses and touch everything. The best part - there were volunteering guides. One of them gave me...More

My girls (4&6) could not get enough of this museum—they loved exploring the town, opening drawers in every room, hiding from the “rainstorm” that periodically appeared, etc. etc. Honestly, one of the best museums I’ve seen for kids this age (and interesting for me as...More

This museum is complimentary to the Edo-Tokyo museum and as they are not far away I would recommend to combine the visit the same day. We also got a volunteer guide here and the experience was great. The museum is smaller than the Edo-Tokyo one...More

This museum re-creates life during the Edo period. Replica's of houses, inns,shops. You can walk and view each structure and guides are available to give you the sense of history and usage at that time period.

Which history museums to see? (14 Replies)
Hi, I will visiting Tokyo in September for the first time for four full days and am trying to plan a daily itinerary. I am interested in history, but there are (at least) four different museums devoted to the history of Tokyo, and I probably don't have time for all of them, given the other things I want to see. There is the Shitamachi Musum, the Fukagawa Edo Museum, the Edo Tokyo (indoor) Museum, and the Edo Tokyo Open Air Museum. Which of these is most interesting? Also, how long should I...More

I've been to all except the outdoor Edo-Tokyo Museum. I definitely recommend the indoor one. It does a great job of telling the story of the city's rise from a fishing village, and its rebirth after fire, earthquake, political upheaval and war. The Shitamachi Museum I found mildly interesting. The Fukagawa Edo Museum doesn't take much time and it's a nice contrast to Edo-Tokyo. You wander among houses peering in windows and doors. It's two stops from Edo-Tokyo Museum on the Oedo line. At...More

Itinerary advice: 4 days in Tokyo (3 Replies)
I will be in Tokyo for four full days in late September with my partner as part of a longer trip to Japan. I've made a list of the sights I want to see and researched travel times between them. Each day except Wednesday includes a morning itinerary, a return to our hotel (Kinshicho, Sumida) around lunchtime, then an afternoon and evening itinerary. This is because I am very energetic and like to start exploring in the early morning, whereas my partner likes to sleep late and limit exploration...More

My only comment is that the return to your hotel around lunchtime seems unnecessary. If you (or your partner) need a rest in the middle of the day, I would suggest spending some time in a cafe. This way you don't need to spend the extra time and energy going all of the way back to the hotel. (This is my personal preference. If your partner needs a nap everyday, then going back to the hotel makes sense.)
