Modern Tokyo

I had to speed through the modern side of the museum a bit since Susannah finished her test early.

They still had a bunch of cool models and life-size replicas of things.

This is a model of a Japanese street during the Taisho period(1912-1926):IMG_0487Note the trolley tracks mixed in with the horse-drawn carriages.

Edo-style woodblock prints still continued on during this period but they started to include more western elements.IMG_0488

There were also more room reconstructions:IMG_0490A Taisho-era house featuring more rooms and a separate entrance.

And a Showa-era (1926-1989) house from the 1960s:IMG_0493Gotta love the powder-blue furniture.

There was even a Showa-era house replication you could walk around in. I didn’t include many pictures because it was a bit cramped so none of them turned out very clear.

There were also a lot of Japanese products from the 70s and 80s that were on display:IMG_0496

This is an original Nintendo Entertainment System (called Family Computer in Japan):IMG_0495 IMG_0494

There was also a television playing tons of TV commercials from the 1980s, and even an original Sony Walkman. Pretty cool.
