  • Is the son of the railway Mania and visit several times. Up to Iwate drive trip from Tokyo to GW (primarily SL Galaxy & Sanriku railway) of the visited prior to departure. Because it wanted to leave my husband and brother work is turned until the evening, from the sweat of the husband and brother and from the Railroad Museum 10 minutes ' walk to meet bath cafe for about 15 minutes, I went with my son and my two. I arrived in 9:00, but not GW 9:30 opening and put earlier than usual. Close the steam locomotive made book mini driving trains and opening at the same time, however, that GW is headed to the door opening and closing experience after booking. It was great fun for any girl interested in young children and rail thin, has been throughout the event, such as a gel candle making. Gel candle making event enters the Railway Museum logo item there would become good memories making. Then by ordering drinks in a cafe on the second floor while son and my mother is of little interest, so relaxed and was made of break. However, so renewed in the restaurant's dining room car recently, HP confirmed the mania is overjoyed and so, seems lost the shelter half happy, half feeling a little shame. I want to go to the restaurant's dining car when you go to the next. Any other reservation in the morning is required nor unbearable to the Simulator experiences, such as the railway Mania attraction. Looking forward into depending on the exhibition vehicle Simulator experience is not, at least, to be sucked into the Chair. In souvenir shops, or for children from adults, offers candy. Stay fully up to 18:00 from 9:30, the son of railway enthusiasts enough in one day, a spectacular Museum as trains galore I love the SL Galaxy & more anticipation of Sanriku railway ride before is able to increase.

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.
