Bunkyo Museum

Museum in The Chiyoda area

Bunkyo Museum opened in April 1991. Bunkyo Ward has a long and rich history as it is known for Yayoi pottery. In the Edo period (1603-1868), samurai residences, temples and shrines, and townhouses developed in the area, forming a unique industry and culture. In the Meiji era (1868-1912), the University of Tokyo and many other schools were established, and famous literary figures such as Mori Ogai and Higuchi Ichiyo used the area as a base for their activities, laying the foundation for a literary and educational town. The Bunkyo Furusato Rekishi Kan (Bunkyo Furusato History Museum) helps to convey the history and cultural assets of Bunkyo Ward to people of all ages, allowing them to come into contact with them and deepen their love and interest in their hometown.
