  • From Nagoya Station on the aonami line approximately 20 minutes, Kinjo-Futo station at the end. By the way the same LEGOLAND station. Here is a nice show clearly in the exhibit just how proud of JR Tokai is the Tokaido Shinkansen, quite modern building. The footage led each recorded the fastest high speed train third on large screen, its history. There was impressive. Is less attraction facility is small, compared to the Railway Museum, was so much better picture here. It was in doctor yellow car and Shinkansen bullet train track repair watch and feel the spirit of railway workers also. Doctor yellow lunch box Deli in when you go to sell the holidays 13 o'clock lunch of all sold out. It seems better raised as soon as possible.

  • A museum dedicated for train/transportation/engineering lovers! Good info on how trains became an integrated part of life in Japan. Pretty cool miniature city show with amazing details. Train conductor simulation was super fun and interesting. 2nd floor has children's play area with toy trains and tracks. A staff is there to sanitize the toys after each use (wow). Easy to navigate facility with ramps and elevators. Will come back!
  • Entrance fee for adult is 1000Yen, simulator is 500 Yen. Buying the ticket is dead simple, you just use the vending machine. And the staff is also able to help you. As for the trains, it's pretty interesting. However, it covers just few trains and shinkansen. Which is slightly disappointing, because in 60 or 90 minutes, you'll be done with the sightseeing and picture taking. Most descriptions are in English. From what I caught, you can also order audio guide for more in depth facts. There is also simple cafeteria and children's playground. Several toilets and vending machines with drinks
  • Awesome place with real trains you can go inside. Train simulator, a room-sized Japan lines live-model, lots of story and working information. A must for railway enthusiast!!
  • This is a train museum talking about the development of the Japan Railway station over years, and how the bullet train is maintained. Driving simulators are available at charge - if traveling with a child, or a transportation fans, highly recommended for visiting. Also very close to Legoland.
  • Great place for kids. It have explanation for some part in English. I go on Saturday and it was not crowded at all. Not so big but it's have a lot of place to take a rest.

Where to stay in Nagoya

The central district, just south from the castle and its gardens, houses the bulk of accommodations in Nagoya. You'll find a good range of standard hotels, with onsite restaurants, simple rooms, and perhaps a pool in this area. Look slightly to the west, or closer to the castle,to find more luxurious accommodations. Across the surrounding residential areas, take a look close to the metro stations to find some of the most conveniently located, but budget-friendly hostels and guesthouses.
