Museum

Edo-Tokyo Museum is a popular tourist facility for those who wish to know more about Tokyo’s past while contemplating its future.
With the 400-year history of the Edo Shogunate as the main focus of its permanent exhibition, both reproductions and actual items expressing the culture and history of Edo-Tokyo are introduced here.
In the Special Exhibition Room on the 1st floor, such exhibits are held several times a year. Until now, these have been mainly about the history and culture of Edo-Tokyo. However, a wide variety of exhibits are held here, such as those of manga artists Tezuka Osamu and Mizuki Shigeru.

  • The Permanent Exhibition Area on the 5th floor is divided into 3 planned exhibits, the Feature Exhibition Room, the Edo Zone and the Tokyo Zone.
  • On the 1st floor, special exhibitions are held 5-6 times a year.
  • Among the items in the museum’s possession are important cultural assets.

    想了解日本東京近代史可以來這邊參觀,還可以免費租借導覽的設備。

    参观过江户东京博物馆后一同前去的朋友都非常感慨。日本人对传统文化的重视,以及所制作的模型中所表现的细微和精致给人极为深刻的印象。连模型中的人物的举止和表情都刻画得惟妙惟肖,好像是真人一样,让人感觉穿越时空来到了江户时代。非常喜欢!

    我們非常喜歡這個博物館。他們重現了江戶時代的整體結構以及建築物、橋樑,這讓整個經歷非常難忘,尤其是對孩子們來說。很多展品(複製品)都可以觸摸。老城市的模型真的很有趣。肯定要推薦你去看看。
