  Visit to Museum and Tourist Sites in Tokyo  
 

(Comments by Jeannie Bennett, 2004 Fellow, on July 3, 2004)

 
 
 

Another fast-paced program today which included visiting the Edo-Tokyo Museum, Toyota Megaweb, and the Sensoji Temple in Asakusa.

The museum contained an interesting collection of architectural and cultural artifacts and recreations from the Edo and Tokyo periods. The visit provided a valuable insight into how people lived and interacted with the environment.

Megaweb was a fascinating Toyota showcase. The showrooms are set on 24,000 square meters (78,740 sq. feet) of land, and since its inception five years ago, 35 million people have visited the site.

The Sensoji Temple in Asakusa was interesting, but alas-- the opportunity to browse the shops straddling the pathway took precedence. A wide range of tourist trinkets, local sweets and crafts were available and this was in start contrast to the sophisticated center of Ginza. I am sure we all left Asakusa with lighter wallets.
