Edo-Tokyo Museum

No reviews, be the first!

Housed in a rather unappealing post-modern concrete structure said to resemble a rice granary, the Edo-Tokyo Museum offers a trip back in time to the start of the Edo period right through to the mid-1960s.

Through a series of exhibits, scale models and displays, visitors get to see Tokyo’s evolution from its earliest days as a small fishing village and the seat of the powerful shogun, Tokugawa Ieyasu, through numerous wars and natural disasters, to the modern metropolis that it is today.
