Sorry for bad quality in some of the pics, because of the rain and that the train was driving, but you can get an idea how it is to go by train along Sumida River.

Arriving in the Ryogoku district, that is part of the Sumida Ward, to visit the Tokyo-Edo Museum.

EDO-TOKYO MUSEUM:

Edo-Tokyo Museum is a museum of Tokyo during the Edo period (1603-1868). Edo was the old name of Tokyo. It is situated in a huge futuristic building in Ryogoku district in Sumida ward. Since the building, designed by Kiyonori Kikutake, stands on four large pillars you can walk underneath the building, and take the glass-enclosed escalators up to the main floor of the buildings. The shape of this enormous building is modelled after an old storehouse in the kurazukuri style. The museum was established in 1993 and has about 1.8 million visitors annually. The museum is adjacent to Ryōgoku Kokugikan, the national sumo arena.
Some of the main featureas of the museum are a life-size replica of the Nihonbashi Bridge (leading into Edo), the Nakamuraza Theatre and scale models of towns and buildings from the Edo, Meiji and Shōwa periods.
You find architectural scale models, interactive maps, sculptures, objects from different decades and real life size replicas of buildings in old Tokyo and Edo, both interiors and exteriors. You also find cars, bikes, stereos, toys and many more objects.
One of the most interesting sights is a scale 1:30 architectural model of The Kamiyashiki of Matsudaira Tadamasa, a residential complex outside the Edo Castle in the 17th century. An architectural model of Ginza in the early 1900s can also be found. There is also an open air branch of the museum with life size replicas of Edo buildings in another part of Tokyo, the western suburb of Koganei.
We went to this museum a very rainy day (the only rainy day during our visit actually) and spent many hours there.
