On Saturday 6th July, thirty-three students from the Japanese Culture & Society course took part in the annual visit to a Tokyo museum. This year, the group visited the Edo Tokyo Museum in Ryogoku, Tokyo.
All the students met in the main entrance of the museum at midday. The weather outside was very hot, and it felt good to be in the air-conditioned environment of the museum. After taking the elevator to the sixth floor, all the student were divided into four groups and were taken around the museum and shown the exhibits by member of the Edo Tokyo Museum Volunteer Guide Group. The museum holds an extensive collection of displays and artefacts detailing the history and growth of Japan’s capital city. The 1½ tour ended with all the groups meeting up for a group photograph under the replica of Nihon Bashi.
Sagami Women’s University greatly appreciates all the efforts made by the staff and volunteers of the Edo Tokyo Museum for making our visit the success it was. Thank you.
