The Shitamachi Museum will timewarp you back to the Meiji Era (1868-1912), which is after Japan opened to the West, but before any of the world wars took their toll. Like the Fukagawa-Edo Museum (which chronicles Japanese life from 1603-1868), it’s an indoor, life-sized town you can stroll through, propped with excellent period details.
Open: Every day, except closed Tuesdays
Hours: 9:30 – 16:30
