Exhibitions

Permanent Exhibition Theme -
The Eastern Suburbs of Edo-Tokyo

It is Adachi's position as a suburban area of that large city Edo, Tokyo's predecessor, that gave rise to its development into the Adachi you see today.
The features of this eastern part of Edo and then Tokyo are its flat land and its situation in the downstream basins of large rivers, as compared to the hilly, western part.
Being a suburban area of a large city and being surrounded by rivers has had a significant impact on the development and the daily life of current-day Adachi.

2nd floor gallery

The gallery presents various perspectives on the way the Adachi area gradually transformed from an area where farming flourished into the city you see today. Adachi was a place people visited to enjoy the countryside. But because the land was flat and it was convenient for transportation by boat, gradually more and more small factories opened, and in time the people who worked in those factories, or who commuted to the city center, moved in. Then, especially after World War II, people came to work in Tokyo from all over Japan, triggering the construction of large numbers of factories and houses in Adachi because of its closeness to the inner city.

Exhibition Room 2

This room presents reconstructions of government housing and daily life around the time of the 1965 Tokyo Olympics.
Electric appliances such as TVs, refrigerators, and rice cookers were then being used in ordinary households.
With its low rent, this house was home to families with factory workers and the like.
In those years, the number of people wanting to live in Tokyo rose, so the Tokyo Metropolitan Government bought farmland and built much public housing.
Adachi’s population increased and it transformed from a farming village area into an urban area.

Kid's Hall

In this corner, visitors are free to look at and handle the old implements and tools.
The shelves and drawers are where the Museum stores its old implements and tools. Some tools and other exhibits may be taken out and used by visitors, so you can discover how they were used.
There are also traditional Japanese amusements like kendama, ohajiki, and spinning tops, which visitors are free to play with. Children are welcome to play with them.
