Going Back in Time: Cycling Through the Edo Period!

The Edo Period was the longest period of governance by samurai in Japanese history and also the most peaceful. From this period Japanese original culture was born. Examples are Kabuki, Sumo, traditional bathing, fireworks, public baths and Ukiyoe woodblock prints. I can’t forget to mention the food such as tempura, sushi, soba, and more! There are many places in Tokyo that still have remnants of Edo now. I will introduce you to the remaining Edo culture in Tokyo!

Tour details

The Edo Period means for 260 years from the time Ieyasu Tokugawa started the Shogunate in Edo, or present Tokyo in 1603, to the Restoration of Imperial Rule by Yoshinobu Tokugawa, the 15th Shogun. Tokyo at that time was known as Edo and was the capital. Its population increased to 10 million in 1700, making it the biggest town in the world during this period. (The population of London was 7 million and Paris had 5 million.)Speaking of the Edo era, the biggest city was Nihonbashi, the center of the economy. Even now, the Bank of Japan is still in Nihonbashi.Asakusa is the largest entertainment city, and also Monzen Nakacho has entertainment areas where ordinary people enjoy Kabuki and sumo. The Edo period tourist attractions go through various places that flourished during Edo.
