  • Is it possible to move my monorail Odaiba students quite often. Exhibitions are an additional fee should be just in time for the show was like a mask, you can see the show.

  • I love it here! If you are into science, or just someone who's trying to get a fresh perspective on the world, this is a good place to drop by. And the view going here is near the seaside so bonus points if you like the sea. Try to schedule your visit when there are exhibitions though to maximize your visit, since the trip here takes almost an hour.
  • This is an OK museum, with a few informative exhibits. Not great if you don't read Japanese though, be warned. The huge globe in the middle is stunning.... But they've put tablets on some of the lounge chairs that are supposed to be interactive but often don't work, rarely work well, and never make any sense. So just sit and relax.
  • Who said museums are boring? This place could be from the future! Most displays/installations are interactive and fun. Best part was getting to meet Asimov. Even though he has been around more than a decade, it was thrilling to see Asimov make those moves.
  • The best museum I've ever visited, I loved it, it explains in a easy way a lot of things and you can also find information of the last innovations in a easy and understandable way. Also, the show of ASIMO is very good. Very recommended.
  • Asimo was really cool, high school students loved him too. Also, the humanoid conversation experience was a lot of fun. Even though you're just talking to someone else while they're controlling the humanoid, it feels like you're talking to the robot. Feels crazy

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.
