"Edo Tokyo museum" Edo-Tokyo Museum Tip by salisbury3933
Edo-Tokyo Museum, Tokyo: 18 reviews and 26 photos
This is quite and interesting museum, which tells the story of sleepy Edo becoming the city that Tokyo is today, and it has a lot of interesting exhibits, outlining all kinds of events in the city's history. It is very interesting and worth the trip.
As a footnote though, I was disappointed by the coverage of the massacre of ethnic Koreans by mobs after the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923 happened. The English commentary has reference to the fact that Koreans were killed, but there is no reference to the fact that Koreans were killed in the Japanese commentary, only that there were massacres. I've put the photos up on this thread for those who want to have a look, but it's disappointing to see Japanese museums distort history once again.
That gripe aside, it's still an interesting place worth visiting.
