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”

“Sumida Edo Kiriko Museum is on the Kuramae-bashi Dori Street, 7 min walk from Kinshicho Station. It takes only 15 min from our hotel on train. Edo Kiriko is a traditional craft which was born from the lives of the townspeople in the late Edo era. The glass bowls and glasses are very beautiful, which makes you mesmerize just by looking. If you make a reservation in advance by phone or email, you can make your original Edo Kiriko by yourself.”

“A lot more interactive than I expected! Can play 70-80% of the drums, but can be aweful loud with more than about 5 people in there as the museum consists of one room. For 500 yen it's a pretty good place to bash about. ”

“The Seiko Museum (formerly the Seiko Institute of Horology) was established in 1981 as part of a 100th anniversary project seeking to assemble, preserve, and study various materials and samples related to “time and time-keeping instruments.” Since its full-fledged renovation in April 2012, the Seiko Museum has served as a base for studies on time and time-keeping instruments and as a source of information from Seiko. The exhibitions and installations at the Seiko Museum are entertaining for visitors of all ages, from adults to kids. Visitors see and learn about the evolution of time-keeping instruments, traditional clocks from Japan (Wadokei), and the history of Seiko and its products.”
