The Tokyo Waterworks Historical Museum is a small, easily accessible, modern museum in Tokyo’s Bunkyo ward that presents the history of a public potable water supply in the capital.
The origins of Tokyo’s water supply go back to the year 1590 when the first Tokugawa Shogun, Ieyasu, having consolidated his authority over the nation at his stronghold in the township of Edo (now Tokyo), decreed the construction of a drinkable water supply as one of the first steps in building what became a city.
The Tokyo Waterworks Historical Museum colorfully traces this history on two spacious floors of exhibits.
