Shitamachi Museum, Tokyo Reviews

  • Worth a visit if you're in Ueno Park. It's cheap. First floor has replica buildings. Second floor has interactive old toys and puzzles.

  • Small but well done museum of old cultural stuff of the area. You get to touch stuff, play with old toys, dress in a coat for photos

  • Short but informative exhibition on how life used to be like. Some English writeup available which enhances the experience.

  • 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

  • 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.
