Edo-Tokyo Museum Insider Tips:
1. The signs are all in English. Heck yes.
2. You can reserve a free tour (also available in English) in advance.
3. Free audio guides are included in the ticket price.
4. There are also special paid exhibits for the extra curious.
5. If you have the time, consider including the Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum (ETM’s sister). It’s a bit out of the way, but in the same direction as the Ghibli Museum, so try fitting it into the same day if you were lucky enough to cop tickets. Miyazaki drew inspiration from some of the buildings here, so it’s actually quite fitting. I really wanted to go but
we were too lazy couldn’t fit it into our itinerary.
