We actually wanted to go to the sumo museum as it us next door but so glad we went here. Cheap to get in and if you ask you can have a free English guide which brings the place to life. Everything is in English too and takes you through Japanese history and culture to the modern day. Fabulous exhibits... More

You will know how Japanese lived during EDO era about 150 years ago. It is very interesting to visit this place.

A very cool but small museum, filled with some delightful exhibits and some pretty big ones. Combine this with the sumo museum which is a stone throw away from here and free.

I'm a huge fan of Japanese history, so had high expectations for this museum. However, I found it a bit disappointing. The reconstructed Edo era village was certainly impressive - but why keep it inside a building ? Seems obvious it should be an outdoors museum? Also, there weren't many explanations in English. Still interesting - but I would recommend... More

We loved the reproduction of a little village in this museum. The space is small but my two little kids had a great time pretending to be villagers. A guide walked us around (and explained everything in English). We loved the one on one attention. She was very nice and thorough in making sure we understood how set-ups. Our kids... More

We went back in time to the days of Edo when we visited the Fukugawa Edo Museum. This is a community culture centre that was established in 1986 and has an Edo period display of reconstructed houses, shops and other buildings to recreate a small section of the old city. Amongst the buildings are a fish-oil and fertiliser wholesaler, a... More

This place was amazing. All of the exhibits and buildings are interactive, and the volunteer English speaking guides will help you get the most out of your visit and explain everything you may see. Don't miss this place on your Tokyo visit! Plus, there's a traditional toy store about a block away that's defiantly worth a visit.

If you are interested to know about Edo times, this place is for you! Well done. Free professional tour guides. They explain everything you need to know by going through the entire site. Big place, give yourself, at least 2 hours. Enjoy:)

I didnt know too much about the Edo-culture before. This museum gives you an insight. Its ideal for a quick stop if you are in the area. I was on my way to the Museum of contemporary art(which I recomend too) and discovered this one by chance. Othervise there is notmuch around.
