The Edo-Tokyo Museum focuses on the 400 years that the Edo period spans in Japanese history. There are around 2,500 items on display, such as Ukiyo-e paintings, picture scrolls, kimonos and documents. There's also life-size replicas of shops and homes that would have been located in the Nihonbashi neighborhood during the Edo period. In the movie room, visitors can watch videos about the Edo period, while the restaurant serves traditional Japanese food and sweets.
