This museum re-creates life in the plebeian quarters of Tokyo during the Meiji and Taishō periods (1868-1926) through an exhibition of typical Shitamachi buildings. Take off your shoes and look inside an old tenement house or around an old sweet shop while soaking up the atmosphere of long-gone Shitamachi. Ask for an English-language leaflet.
