Explore Tokyo beyond the crowded tourist highlights and you'll find many older parts of the city with a different look and slower pace.There's a charming local history museum, public garden, coffee shops and a contemporary art museum.Most tourists with any interest in history end up at the Edo Tokyo Museum with its indoor re-creation s of historic buildings from the Edo era, which began in the 1600s. The Fukagawa museum, which predates the Edo Tokyo museum, is much smaller and more charming, with a life-size Edo-period town recreated on its lower level. Walk the small streets and alleys around the museum and you'll find a mix of residences, shops, small businesses and light industrial spaces.If you're willing to walk a bit farther you can also have a completely modern experience in this old neighborhood at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo.
