Nagaya (tenement houses) of Old town Shitamachi
The exhibition on the first floor is set in the Taisho period (1912-1926). The displays reproduces good old days of Tokyo’s shitamachi townscape. Inside the shop complex facing the street and the tenement house between narrow alleys are coppersmith’s workshop and a traditional sweets shop, as well as a communal well. Each room contains ethnographical objects owners of the house may have used.
