Brief comments by students
Ms. Ha phuong Thuỷ from Vietnam
I was interested in the diorama of a town in old days. It was a good chance for me to know the old days’ life.
Ms. Wan Laimui Mona (温 麗梅）from Hongkong
I went to Edo-Tokyo Museum together with classmates of Saturday Japanese class.
I could see the daily life of Edo era and of 1960s.
I could have better understanding of Japan.
I want to find another chance to visit there again.
Ms.Yu Ronghua (于荣華) from China
I could learn culture, history, business and architecture of Edo era. I also experienced common people’s life of those days. I found a doll of Guān Yǔ (関羽）a feudal warlord in Shu-Han dynasty of China) on the Kanda Shrine’s float of Edo era. It was a fun to see the influence of Chinese culture. There was an acrobatic show from 12:30. We could try Japanese traditional entertainment using an umbrella. It was an unforgettable experience.
