Tokyo's museum dedicated to detailing the city's history, art,
culture and architecture through the medium of visual displays is
an impressive, not to be missed attraction. Edo was the old name
for Tokyo from its foundation in 1590 when it became the seat of
Tokugawa Ieyasu, the first shogun. Exhibits include a replica of an
ancient Kabuki theatre, maps, photographs and portrayals of the
lives of the city's merchants, craftsmen and townspeople in days
