The Edo-Tokyo Museum was opened in 1993 as a place to look back on the history and culture of Edo-Tokyo and think about the future of the city and its lifestyle. The museum's unique architecture is based on the image of a warehouse on stilts. The permanent exhibition focuses on the history and culture of Edo Tokyo during the first 400 years of Tokugawa Ieyasu's reign in the capital, introducing the city's history and culture through the use of real documents and reconstructed models. In addition to the special exhibitions, which are held five to six times a year, the museum holds various activities such as lectures and hands-on classes.
