  • On October 4th, I stopped by in the middle of a tour of 10 companies in Tokyo. There is a life-size model exhibition (ninga, shops, canals, fire-viewing) of the Edo-era town of Fukagawa. There is a volunteer guide who will guide you through the building, so it's a good idea to take a look while listening to the explanations. On this day, there were some visitors who seemed to be junior high school students, so i think it would be good for social studies.

  • On the day I visited here, I happened to be doing an event called "Haunted House". The museum, which usually ends at 17:00, seems to be open at night. Haunted people seem to be hiding here and there in the building. In fact, if you go and look at it, there are a lot of haunted people, such as the third child and the umbrella haunted, in various places of the building. It's interesting to find it, and even without it, the buildings and houses of the time have been reproduced and enjoyable. I don't know if it's done every year, but it's fun for adults. When you enter the house, take off your shoes, so it is recommended that you wear shoes that are easy to take off.

  • Really cool museum. Amazing concept with pretty much a whole historic village housed indoors in a huge modern building. This museum was very popular with Japanese locals and we were amongst very few tourists. Attention to detail was very good and we learnt a lot about Edo era history.
  • Best museum ever!! Lovely guide who walks you through the entire replica village to explain everything.. and you can touch and play with all the props too! The lighting and sound design change every 15mins to replicate the time in day and seasons. Mind blowing attention to detail. Great value for what you pay.
