ABOUT&ACCESS

Edo-Tokyo Museum presents a marvelous collection of articles and miniatures of the life and cultures of Edo and Tokyo following the city's history for a few centuries. The way the articles and the miniatures are displayed are so unique and humorous that the museum as a whole is almost like a re-creation of Edo. Visitors can enjoy observing the history of the capital city by rather feeling the liveliness than learning facts.
The museum provides various cultural activities including special exhibitions based on certain themes, lectures and events are held periodically, and the opening of the hall and studying room.
By all means, Edo-Tokyo Museum is a visitor-participatory museum.
