This is the place to learn about Tokyo's 19th century common folk. In those days, the city was known as "Edo," and native Tokyoites (Edo-ko) pride themselves on their connections to this plebian past. Everyday life is reproduced in a rather constricted display area, but the replicas of row houses which were integral to living in shitamachi (the "lower" town) are nevertheless noteworthy. The fire water tower is also impressive. Take a good look at the maps to see how Tokyo has grown. The museum remains closed on the second and fourth Mondays of every month.
