Edo-Tokyo Museum

Waseda International Club organized a trip to the Edo-Tokyo Museum, located close to the Ryougoku station. It was founded in 1993, and has both permanent as well as special exhibitions. The permanent exhibition revolves around the history of Tokyo, from the Edo period (1603-1868) until today.
I'm not very knowledgeable about the history of Japan and it's not really one of my bigger interests, but nevertheless I enjoyed the museum. 

A replica of an actual bridge in Edo (the former name of Tokyo).

Traditional Japanese dance performance.

There were a lot of models and miniature displays, giving an insight into ordinary life during the Edo period, that I liked. 

Some Kabuki (classical Japanese dance-drama, read more here) costumes on display. I really like the hairdos and all the ornaments. And the shoes, especially hers :)

Some random photos.

  The end :)
