Tokyo Fukagawa Edo Museum Photo Gallery

Fukagawa Edo Museum has re-created an old Edo main street featuring stores, homes, and even a fire-watch tower.

The vegetable store comes with an array of fake examples.

Rice is staple food in east Asia, so a rice store is essential on any main street.

Traditional cloths are hung out to dry.

A cross-section of people's homes - see how they live and what they eat.

This open area is public space with a well, toilet, garbage bin, and an Inari Shrine.

The rice warehouse is not built of wood to prevent fire damage. Notice the thick door.

The open space in front of the fire-watch tower is meant to slow down a raging fire and to prevent it from spreading to neighbouring houses. However, food stalls have taken over for now.

Sit under this shelter for a sip of tea.

The boathouse is a gathering place for those who depend on the sea for a living.

The kitchen was well-stocked to serve the boathouse's visitors.

Around the corner, a portable eatery awaits customers, serving what appears to be either a bean or rice mixture.
