Edo-Tokyo Museum information
This history museum does an excellent job laying out Tokyo's miraculous transformation from feudal city to modern capital, through city models, miniatures of real buildings, reproductions of old maps and ukiyo-e (woodblock prints). Don't miss the life-sized replica of the original Nihonbashi. There is English signage throughout and there's also a free audio guide available (¥1000 deposit).
