We came from Kyoto for the day just to see this wonderfully informative Museum. So pleased we did! For two hours our volunteer guide took us through the two floors giving us an enormous amount of information. The Permanent Exhibition shows 400 years of history...More

This complex is huge. The re-creations of the nihonbashi bridge and the kabuki theater are amazing. Well worth the time and effort. There is a large Japanese style restaurant on the top floor with an English language menu if needed.

We spent a few hours here and didn’t see anywhere near all of it. For only Y600 entry you could easily spend the day here. All of the displays have Japanese and English captions, there is a free audio tour in multiple languages as well...More

Highlight will be the attention to detail in recreating models representing the Edo Period. A lot of these buildings were destroyed by earthquakes and wars so the models brought us back in time.

I'm not much of a museum goer, I went because my partner really wanted to see it. However, seeing how Japan evolved from the samurai, to the Tokyo it is today was phenomenal. The replica and real historical pieces of art were amazing to look...More

I already visited the museum. The lockers are small, not suitable for a carry on. But they can store bigger luggage at the ticketing counter by the coin lockers they have a special room for that. 😉
