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.

This is a small museum that focuses on what it was like to live in the Fukagawa area during Edo times. Basically it is a big room that has a reconstruction of the town during this time including houses, vegetable stores and even the public toilet. There are English speaking guides who will give you even more information or you... More

If you are into history and want to know more about the way people lived in Japan, Edo centuries ago, this is very interesting and educational place that you benefit from when travelling around Japan. Good to have an English speaking guide, almost essential. There are volunteers ready to take us around.

This is my favorite experience in Japan so far. Away from the madness, step inside a peaceful recreation of a Edo period village. We were lucky to get an English speaking guide to show us through. It took about an hour which was perfect with our three year old in tow.

This is a most impressive building, it got me the first time I saw it and again on my return. I actually love the area around the museum too. Inside it was brilliant. I traveled with my 6 year old and we joined and group with a guide - best way to do it as they give you lots more... More
