The Edo-Tokyo Museum in Ryogoku may be bigger and more impressive, but this place is where you can really get a feel for what life was like in Edo. Walking around the reconstruction of the Sagacho area of Fukagawa teaches you about the importance of stowing away futons, lets you in on the details of how commoners earned their living, and gives you a feel of how dark it got in Edo at night. The friendly volunteers are happy to guide you around the museum, and you might even find an English-speaking fellow here if you're lucky.
