Edo Tokyo Museum
The Edo-Tokyo Museum is a museum of the history of Tokyo, established in 1993. The main features of the permanent exhibitions are the life-size replica of the Nihonbashi, which was the bridge leading into Edo; the Nakamuraza theatre; scale models of town; and buildings from the Edo, Meiji and Shôwa periods. The museum is located in Ryôgoku adjacent to the Ryôgoku Kokugikan. The distinctive elevated shape of the museum building is modeled after an old storehouse in the kurazukuri style.
