    There was a Kanda Suda-Cho was once the Transport Museum and hear the railway at that time as well as ships, aircraft, vehicles, railway is currently only. Central exhibition room is like the remodel on a regular basis. Time, blow a whistle of the SL, but I like are invited the pathos in the countryside was born in. Children are, of course, the railway would also be Juan. I recommend including mini vehicles driving experience to the children.

When toddlers get original toy train museum information allowed at +100 yen. (Usually 200 yen) my house because it's usually done so in transport costs and entrance fees of about 2500 Yen at +1000 yen round trip train ride is very attractive. Bullet train for the first time (echo & Asama) to great satisfaction because was overjoyed. Monday 10:30 Tohoku Shinkansen bullet train was going at first occupied almost a State. Line up for seats next to each other; Return Omiya off quite so pretty there are free places. In part renewed facilities, restaurants, etc off and reduce the operating time. In many standing-room patrons also are full and commentary show for about 10 minutes. Spotlight vehicles are described as small child friendly which train story. Central turntable to rotate EF55-electric locomotive, a big whistle blaring is very powerful and also engineer who will wave his hand. If you have two or more adults where lunch is served in the matrix, the industry bought one, is another one who'd waited while playing with the kids Plaza (free) next to the better. PLA-rail and oekaki zones House Ekiben shop, such as boys and girls can enjoy. So many people go on holiday immediately after eating much of the seat itself is rotating faster. Price is about 2000 yen with three, tourist accommodation in affordable price. Because 14 left the field soon after they return Shinkansen power offers all around was the still 10 minutes.

Various projects is also very much a child, children can also be very fun to play. Just a few projects lined up for too long or you need to make an appointment, recommended working days later

    Good place to visit, especially for children. Suggest that you can go with your kids to visit the museum. Take a snail train, even try to drive a train. Check the details of old engines and also 新幹線. There is one or 2 restaurants in the museum. You can also try variety Japanese style train lunch boxes. It is really a nice place for both adults and children.

Where to stay in Saitama

Not truly an established tourist destination, the accommodations of Saitama remain rather one-tone. Close to the main train stations that are such a key feature of the city, because of their connections with Tokyo, you'll find the majority of accommodations here, primarily coming in the form of business-style hotels. Modern, fairly ordinary, and with pools and restaurants as standard, they offer a decent place to bed down for the night. The depth and variety of Tokyo's accommodations lie just a half-hour train journey to the south.
