Shitamachi Museum, Tokyo Reviews

  • It was interesting to get a better idea of how quickly things changed in Japan. What took western society a century, they did in just decades. Staff were amazing and very very helpful

  • Each day in Tokyo I have met and enjoyed time with warm, friendly people, Miwako at the museum was simply the best...thanks to her, I left feeling like I had spent some time living in Old Tokyo!...really interesting museum and the re-creation of the tenement housing and shops is so worth a visit, thank you to all the folk at Shitamachi Museum 🙏🏽

  • The museum maybe small but rich in content. One can have a good knowledge about livelihood in the Shitamachi from early Meiji to 1960s. The way Japanese preserves their history is impressive. They offer English guide and ours soon spoke well English and knowledgeable as well.

  • Very interesting little museum. Learn about local old Tokyo life. Cheap admission and free guide.

  • Nice clean little museum, has interactable objects inside the museums that you can play around with. Free every second Saturday I believe.
