Showa-no-Kurashi Museum (Museum of Life in the Showa Era)

Travel Guide - Showa-no-Kurashi Museum (Museum of Life in the Showa Era)

Travel GuideTravel Guide

The wooden house built in 1951 had been actually used by an ordinary family until 1996 before it was turned into a museum in 1999. In the museum, visitors can learn the lifestyle of ordinary Tokyo citizens in the Showa Era (1926 - 1989). The typical Japanese house and its interior are kept as they were, so you might feel as if you are visiting not a museum but a someone's house.

The OS maker's office had moved from Fuchu to Shinagawa. So, Fuchu became decayed! The residential countryside is dotted with humble houses.

@CAntista Or visit the smoking pens between office buildings in Shinagawa. Smokers are restricted to these outdoor pens like zoo animals.

Why does #Shinagawa train station smell like a toilet? Every day this week, the doors open and an assault of nasal funk boards the train.
