Edo-Tokyo Museum

An impressive dichotomy of massive modern architecture on the outside and a subdued, scholarly-yet-approachable atmosphere on the inside, this tribute to the history of Tokyo houses a large number of life-sized dioramas and recreations of what life in the city was like until the middle of the last century, including a 1-to-1 scale replica of the wooden incarnation of the iconic Nihonbashi bridge, the real version of which has long since been replaced with a stone one. Guided tours in English are available, as are a number of live performances including kabuki and noh theater.
