  • May 2019 my visit to the museum!!An amazing museum of Edo period (From ~1500 until ~1800 year) Incredible and infinite exhibits... They presented life in different aspects of daily life in Japan, There were also many models with the structure of an Edo period area!! Also incredible were the buildings and the figures of people in real dimensions that presented the routine of the time!! I also loved the interactivity they provided.... I remember there were 3 small rooms with how the lamps evolved, it was a real revolution every time... Great experience! I should emphasize that the museum was an architectural epic, spotlessly clean and there were several ways to tour!!Thank you Japan... Unforgettable experience from the look of the building, the perfect organization and tour even the souvenirs I bought were wonderful....!!
  • The entry ticket is 600yen till today. The Museum is has two portions, one is Edo period and the another portion is how the Tokyo is formed after Edo to current period. The artwork was simply mind blowing, even the small details were perfect, all are miniature product of old Japan within their residential areas, cars, clothes and how westernisation has established in Japan and many more. It is totally worth the visit, people who love history and who don’t like history will like these art works, kindly pay a visit you don’t regret.
