The Keep of Edo Castle

What did the keep of Edo Castle really look like?

Designs and drawings give us some clues, as do the cultural artifacts and traditional techniques that survive to this day. We have used them to create a program that lets you join us in the exciting process of recreating the keep of Edo Castle.
