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

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


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.
