Shitamachi Museum

Shitamachi Museum

InformationInformation

Shitamachi Museum serves to pass on the culture and traditions of Shitamachi to future generations. "Shitamachi" was originally an area of Edo where the common people lived. The museum recreates the atmosphere of Shitamachi and its customs and life style in the Meiji, Taisho, and early Showa Periods - from 1860's to 1940's.
On the ground floor, a street from the old days of the Taisho period has been reconstructed. The second floor houses an exhibition of artifacts, everyday tools and toy from around the Shitamachi area, focused on Taito Ward, and exhibits on the things people did during each season. Visitors can enjoy its regular demonstration programs of handicraft making and Kamishibai (picture-story shows) for children.
