The Fukagawa Edo Museum (深川江戸資料館) is dedicated to the Edo era with a life-size replica of a Tokyo shitamachi neighborhood from around 1840. Volunteer guides are on hand to walk you through the exhibits (some of whom are able to guide you in English). Along with the Shitamachi Museum and Edo-Tokyo Museum, the Fukagawa Edo Museum gives visitors a good sense of what living during this period was like for the common folk.
