Witness the historical development of Japan's fire department on a family-friendly tour of Fire Museum 消防博物館. Start on the sixth floor, where special exhibits and a children's room complete with firefighter-related games and videos will keep all ages entertained. Working downwards, chart the progression from the perils of 17th-century firefighting, depicted in a traditional bunraku puppet show on the fifth floor, through to the technological advancements since the mid-1800s, showcased on the fourth floor. Today's high-tech equipment sported by mannequins on the third floor offer an interesting contrast. Cap off the tour with a bite to eat and a view of the area on the tenth-floor observation deck.

  • 在四谷三丁目出站,出口直接通博物館,頂樓可以吃東西也可以看VIEW(對面是中型超市),六樓有戶外直昇機,可以入機艙,近距離拍照,其他大型消防車,消防衣帽試穿,全部都是"無料",去的時候超多日本父母帶小朋友去的。離新宿御苑只有一站,去完可以去新宿御苑逛逛無敵大草坪 
  • Damn is that graced the Red helicopter roof balcony, stopped by a little bit. History starting from the Edo blaze with free admission and various fire fighting vehicles and exhibits, there being people. Essential helicopter sits freely in the cockpit and take pictures and small children line up had to flee. I think to revisit at a vacant and slowly look. Yotsuya-Sanchome, directly connected to access feel free at any time!

  • Nice for kids. Also interactive exhibitions. Free. Easy access.
  • Have fun and go with the kids. Dressed in Firefighter's Memorial shoot. Puppet show in the diorama? or so and designed for children also show how easy it is.

  • Unexpectedly enriched contents. You can ride on the helicopter. Fire fighting clothing children's photo too.

  • Was substantial. So you want to observe early next to come. With children, it was.

  • It seems particularly child-friendly, family-friendly Museum. However, display of transition from the Edo period Meiji era, modern, evolving fire related systems and tools, you can watch interesting even for adults. In particular, underground fire (from the Meiji and Taisho eras down to the present), rides and mechanics would like to be. Affordable to spend a holiday where you can enjoy a few hours in this building alone, even though admission is free, so the perfect place! For Yotsuya Fire Department Office is on the second floor, the rule limits. The top floor is to the observation deck. 10th floor level height, so I feel somewhat the insipid as the Observatory. I'd briefly around the room, Observatory of food and beverage products is possible only because, to take a break during use.
