Edo-Tokyo Museum

The Metropolitan Edo-Tokyo Museum (_江戸東京博物館_Edo Tōkyō Hakubutsukan) opened its doors in March 1993 as a space to reflect on the history and culture of Edo-Tokyo and envision the city and life of the future. Housed in a unique building designed by Kiyonori Kikutake (who was a member of the Metabolism group of the 1960/70's), the museum has been a landmark and popular tourist attraction in Tokyo since its opening. The permanent exhibition, showcasing original objects and replicas, offers visitors a journey through the 400-year history of Edo-Tokyo since Tokugawa Ieyasu entered Edo (August 1, 1590). In the outskirts of Tokyo, it also has an open-air architectural museum established in 1993. This other museum aims to relocate, reconstruct, preserve and exhibit historical buildings of great cultural value that are impossible to preserve at their actual places. | Photos of the Edo´Tokyo Museum by Martin Grossmann, september 2019 | URL: https://www.edo-tokyo-museum.or.jp/en/
