  •  Here are about 10 minutes ' walk from Tokyo station. I think everyone from children to adults, and rich variety of exhibits, admission is free of charge.

  • The Police Museum is a great free museum. There is a lot of things that you can take your pictures with, such as the outside police car or the inside police motorcycle. If you have kids then they can dress up as a police officer and get their photo taken. They have a lot of interactive displays and most have subtitles in English. You will only spend 1 to 1.5 hours here, but it's worth it.
  • The only free stuff in Ginza area. Thumb up for the police Japan. Very children friendly area.
  • Wonderful museum for kids 4 - 10 years. Many of the exhibits have English but not all. Best to go with a Japanese reading friend if you need help. However, even if you don't understand Japanese you can still have fun. Entry is free! You can see our full review at Best Living Japan.
  • The best area for kids... ironically is the entrance. Kids can dress-up in police costumes and sit on and play with real vehicles... even a helicopter.
  • Very nice place, friendly staff, free entrance. Recommend for families

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
