History Museum
“The Tokyo Metropolitan Edo-Tokyo Museum opened its doors in March 1993 as a space to reflect on the history and culture of Edo-Tokyo and envision the city and life of the future. Housed in a unique building modeled after an elevated-floor type warehouse, the museum has been a landmark and popular tourist attraction in Tokyo since its opening. The permanent exhibition, showcasing original objects and replicas, offers visitors a journey through the 400-year history of Edo-Tokyo since Tokugawa Ieyasu entered Edo. In addition to the permanent exhibition, the museum holds special exhibitions at the first-floor gallery five to six times a year and carries out various other events, including lectures and workshops on the history and culture of Edo-Tokyo. We hope that the museum can be Tokyo’s center for the creation of new culture and a place of respite for visitors. Special Exhibition Samurai – Peacekeeping Contributors in Edo Period 2019.09.14(Sat)〜2019.11.04(Mon) Opening time: Sun 9:30 AM - 5:30 PM Tue - Fri 9:30 AM - 5:30 PM Sat 9:30 AM - 7:30 PM”

“Ryogoku (両国, Ryōgoku) is a district of Tokyo where the sumo stadium, many sumo stables, chanko restaurants and other sumo related attractions can be found. It is the center of the sumo world. Sumo events have been staged in this area for a long time, but until the beginning of the 20th century, sumo tournaments were held outdoors at shrines and temples. In 1909, the first permanent sumo hall was built in the Ryogoku area. Today's sumo stadium, the current Kokugikan, is the fourth built in Tokyo and has been in use since 1985. It seats over 10,000 visitors and hosts three of the six annual sumo tournaments (in January, May and September).”

This must-see district is where kimono-clad visitors enjoy a retro Tokyo experience, athletic rickshaw drivers hawk rides around the district, and atmospheric stalls and restaurants offer a huge array of traditional foods and souvenirs.”

“This is one of the oldest the busiest shopping streets in Japan! Everyone can enjoy this streets because this shopping street was established and advanced as a pilgrimage street starting from Kaminarimon gate to the main hall of Sensoji. About 90 shops of some food stands, or many different kinds of souvenir will absolutely attract you on the way to the temple. One notice is that, if you would like to enjoy shops, be sure to arrive here before 6PM! Many of the shops start closing from that time. But if you don’t care about shopping and would like to enjoy the lights in the night, it will be much more quiet and you can enjoy a beautiful light up of the temple, too!”

“Imahan is definitely an upscale place, good for a fancy dinner. Just across the street from Hitsumabushi, it’s located at the corner of Kokusaidori and Kappabashihondori. You are greeted by ladies in perfect make-up and coiffure wearing kimono. If you are seated upstairs, you leave your shoes and are ushered into an elevator with tatami on the floor. Prices start at 8000 Y, but it’s worth the experience.”
