  • 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

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.
