Kiyosumi-shirakawa - Experience Edo Era's Town in Fukagawa Edo Museum

Kiyosumi-shirakawa is one of the most representative Shitamachis(下町, Japanese traditional residential area) in Tokyo.

Developing of not only the Shitamachis, but also Tokyo itself started since the opening of Edo Bakufu(江戸幕府, Tokyo-centered government organized by Japanese warriors so-called Bushi or Samurai in Japanese) about 400 years ago.

We are not in Edo Era(江戸時代, period controlled by Edo Bakufu) of course, but we can even now experience shape of Shitamachi in Edo Era at Fukagawa Edo Museum(深川江戸資料館).
