    It is a Museum under the overpass of the vine West station, Tokyo Metro Tozai line. Just think "Let's go out" live local, did not in fact pretty feet. Within and exhibited of the Ginza line and Marunouchi line train and subway construction, driving simulator, Museum Shop, have a much more impressive from the outside, had a exhibition. 210 yen, children 100 yen (9/2017), admission is cheap, so the drop is higher level of satisfaction.

    Hopefully with small children can enjoy two hours. Age still can't ride the Train Simulator is enjoyed by model driving quizzes. It is difficult to press the stop button is a little diorama of the large order as soon as possible. Because the Museum has of course not parking cars, not always go by bicycle or bus.

    It was a museum beneath the vine West station on the Tokyo Metro Tozai line, Metro thing you know anything you can. If you bring a small child is not wide enough for it, I think good. Little hotel there that last August, was filled with us. Looks like an older couple in everyone. Entrance fee, adults 210 yen, children 100 yen and easy to enjoy. Children's popularity was in the driver's seat of the actual experience and driving experience of the simulation. The exhibits, such as old nostalgic ones more, learn more underground structures and construction methods. It was 2 hours while remembering fondly to the school by subway.

    Very clean museum, not too big but it's good here to experienced driving train and learnt how complicate of Tokyo metro/train underground systems. The art of Tokyo metro lines model performs quite exciting!

    Awesome for train fans! A lot of content is Japanese-only, but you'll still learn plenty from the English content (and visuals), and there is a lot of awesome interactive models, including a very realistic train control simulator (and a permanent guide who will explain and guide you). Come before noon on a workday to avoid crowds. Note that Toei subway lines are not mentioned in this museum and its timelines.

    Interesting and convenient to the nearest station. Children may not find interesting as much as it might seem: lots of text on the walls.

    is pretty big, worth the visit, good to go with kids. Has lots of interesting and interactive things to do.

    Right under a Subway station, makes a whole lot of sense.

Where to stay in Tokyo

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.
