The spectacular Edo-Tokyo Museum, whose design is inspired by the traditional Japanese rice loft, is home to a striking depiction of the history of Tokyo over the centuries. A fascinating journey through time with painstaking reproductions of homes of samurai and craftsmen, replicas of a kabuki theatre, the old red-light district and emblematic landmarks such as Nihombashi Bridge. A lively museum that provides a fine introduction to the city of Tokyo, or Edo as it used to be called.
