This museum was very good! You can go through it within an hour. There is English headsets available, and you can take photos in there. Be careful not to even eat a breathmint; we got scolding for doing so. The gift shop there has cute things.

This museum provides an amazing look back at Tokyo before it was Tokyo. The museum participates in the free in-language tour program, which definitely enhances the experience.

This was my daughter's favorite stop on our trip to Japan. This is the second of three local history museums built in the 80s/90s. (Shitamachi and the Edo Museum are the other two). The medium size means that there is a lot to do and see, but it is not too overwhelming. We walked around with my daughter, talked with... More

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

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
