Edo-Tokyo Museum

江戸東京博物館

Description

The Metropolitan Edo-Tokyo Museum opened its doors in 1993 as a space to reflect on the history and culture of Edo-Tokyo and envision the city and life in the future. The unique designed building was modeled after an elevated-floor warehouse and it is approximately 62.2 meters high. The museum has seven stories above ground and one below for exhibition rooms, library and halls. The permanent exhibition, showcasing original objects and replicas, offers visitors a journey through the 400-year history of Edo-Tokyo since the first Shogun Ieyasu Tokugawa entered Edo. You can see how people in Edo were living. Volunteer guides give tours for the permanent exhibition in 7 languages including English and Chinese (some languages may not be available depending on the day). In addition to the permanent exhibition, the museum organizes special exhibitions at the exhibition hall on the first floor and lecture sessions and workshops in hall or study room. Also, there are restaurants and a museum shop in the premises. A one-minute walk from the A3 or A4 Exit of Ryogoku Station on the Subway Oedo Line.
