Our friend Akemi took us to the Edo-Tokyo Museum the other day. It was basically the history of Edo, or old Tokyo. There were a ton of models to see of old houses and cities.
I highly recommend if you go, renting the recording to listen to if you don’t read Japanese. There seemed to be a ton of information on each art piece or model, but I couldn’t read any of it.
Very little was in English (which I thought was a bit odd due to the fact that it was a history museum and English is an international language) But, you can rent a headset for 1,000 yen or $10 and then get your money back when you return the headset. I promise this will give you better view of the museum.
Entrance Fee was 600 yen.
