  • We visited the Shitamachi Museum and enjoyed it very much. There are two exhibition levels on the ground floor you can see houses and facilities of before the great earthquake in 1922, to all there are English-language explanations, the exhibition can be completely committed which gives a much better sense of fragmentation of the apartments. On the second floor, the whole unfortunately with too little explanation in English provided and thus a little too meaningful. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and in the end we even got two origami donated by the staff. Definitely worth a visit.
  • It is a small museum nicely prepared. If you don't speak Japanese a guide will explain what is exposed on ground floor (free of charge). The museum is not big, but nicely prepared.
