Shitamachi Museum is called "Shitamachi-fuzoku
shiryokan" in Japanese, and is located near the Shinobazu pond and the
south entrance of Ueno Park.
Shitamachi means "old town", so this museum shows the town of Tokyo around the Meiji, Taisho and early Showa Period (from late 19th to early 20th century).
In the ground floor, there are the houses and shops in the Taisho
In the rooms of them, furnitures and household goods of those days are set up. And narrow alley between houses and communal well are also recreated.
On the second floor, many goods and tools for daily life in those days
They are livingware, toys, goods for annual events. Some are still used in our life, and some aren't.
As the annexed museum, there is the Sake shop "Yoshida-ya" built in 1910, and it is located about 0.5 km northwest of Tokyo National Museum.
