Learning from a neighborhood stroll

A recommended day out for families on the east side of Tokyo, including the Fukagawa Edo Museum, which recreates small slice of Edo-era Japanese life.

EXCERPT:

“You will appreciate the attention to detail. Not only are the building replicas pleasingly realistic, but the ambiance has also been considered. For example, the entire space goes through a day’s lighting cycle about every 45 minutes, complete with sunrise and sunset. There are a number of ambient sounds piped in through hidden speakers, as well: a cat meows from the roof, and a rooster crows at dawn.”
