It was built in JNR bus parking night park (formerly the two countries Freight Station site). New Kokugikan the ground the second floor, the first floor underground. The total construction cost 15 billion yen (all I financed with no debt).

"Chanko" means the home cooking to make the wrestlers in sumo room.
We usually say Chanko as "Chanko nabe (Chanko pot)".
Chanko nabe is healthy menu. Because we can eat boiled vegetables and mushrooms, tofu, meat enters fish.

Tokyo Metropolitan Edo-Tokyo Museum

Tokyo Metropolitan Museum in Yokoami Sumida-ku, Tokyo. 3-minute walk from JR Ryogoku Station, is located next to the Kokugikan.

The height of the ground segment is about 62m, it is almost the same as the tower of the Edo Castle.

I recommend the permanent exhibition. Because there is not crowded.
After watching, you can enjoy the tea in the Japanese-style cafe on the first floor.
