- Here you can learn the history behind the building decorations and wood sculptures that are found on Tokyo's temples and shrines. As city buildings were often the victims of fires, skilled carpenters were always in demand. Moreover, during the Edo Period (pre-1868 Tokyo), carpenters were the first tradesmen to organize themselves into a collective body - called Taishi-ko - whose purpose was to obtain wage increases. The work of these skilled craftsmen is well displayed here. Admission: Free
