    What did you play with when you were a child? When I was young, I remember playing with marbles and a kaleidoscope. These toys are less seen nowadays, because of the Internet and new trends. What do you imagine children played with, 320 years ago when there were no video games in Japan?
    There are very rare toys from the Edo period (1603 to 1868) exhibited at the Naramachi Mechanical Toy Museum.
