The Edo-Tokyo Museum offers an experience of Tokyo’s history and culture from premodern times to the present. The permanent exhibition area showcases life-size models of Nihombashi Bridge and a playhouse in the Edo period (1603–1868), and small-scale models of the Rokumeikan Hall and the streetscape of Ginza in the Meiji period (1868–1912). A wealth of real-life materials including ukiyo-e woodblock prints, kimono gowns, and daily household items also provide fun insight into the history of Edo and Tokyo.
