Join for a virtual tour of Samurai armor and swords in Tokyo, Japan. Today we visit the Edo-Tokyo Museum and the Japanese Sword Museum in Tokyo to see katana, wakizashi, and oshigata (art of sword hamon tracing on paper), scale models, and full sets of Edo period samurai armor on display. These museums are both amazing things to do in Tokyo and can be great experiences for kids or adults. There are many interactive displays and a ton of full sized scale models to view in this massive museum. The museum is right next to the Ryogoku Station and the sumo wrestlers arena. This area has great parks, restaurants and is a great place to walk by the river. In this series, Koreen and Levi explore Japan in search of weapons, armour and other fun Japanese historical artifacts.
