Edo Tokyo Museum

Lately it’s been rainny in Tokyo, so it was time to check on some indoor activities, like museums. This time I write about the Edo Tokyo Museum one of the museums about japanese history in Tokyo, probably one of the most known and interesting to visit as a tourist. To get there you can drop off at Ryogoku station, on the JR Sobu line. The museum is nearby the Kokugikan Sumo Stadium.
But what is Edo? Is the former name for Tokyo, also the name of the Edo period, that goes from 1603 to 1867. After that came the Meiji restoration, and finished with one of the most known things about Japan, and most tourists expect to yet see here, yes, I’m talking about samurais.
