I’m writing to pay tribute, but would not be necessary, as I agree with the other positive reviews. A journey in time. With the Tokyo-Edo Museums, the only opportunity I had in Tokyo. Too bad the Shitamachi is so tiny.
A very well spent hour. Fee very reasonable ( 300 yens)
Really met my eagerness for ordinary people’s History.
By the way, if you hire a Japanese guide, as I did, he/she may not know about this one. Mine, although of a very good professional level, national licenced, big agency (JTB), was not aware of it. Had two different guides in this trip. Ended up believing they are trained mostly in what they expect people want to see: shrines, temples and big busy museums. But this one is about simple, ordinary people, their daily life a century ago.
Well written one-page printed page, given at entrance, in English.
Review from Hapa, from Florida ( June 10, 2012) is excellent: I could not say it better ( so, better not plagiarize her).
The review of Annh, from California, published on December 10, 2007, is worth reading.
In the very pleasant Ueno Park. Go see reviews about it. Peacefull, many museums, and good people watching.
Will visit again, on my next time in Tokyo.
