Fukagawa Edo Museum

Inside the atrium space stretching up from its first basement floor to its second floor, the museum contains a typical townscape from the Edo Period (around the Tenpo Era of 1830-1844) that reflects the lifestyles of ordinary people during that time.
Particularly close attention has been paid to the two "nagaya" (long row houses typical in Edo), the "yaoya" (greengrocer's shop), the "tsukigomeya" (rice merchant's shop), the "hinomiyagura" (fire lookout tower), the "chokibune" (long thin roofless boats) floating in the waterways, and the many daily necessities for life within the home at the time.
The atrium also hosts a production involving sound and lighting effects that summarizes daily life at the time in Fukagawa in approximately 15 minutes.
