Fire Museum 消防博物館, Shinjuku
(4.2/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 有意思的一個博物館,可了解日本的消防史,以及日本防災機制的演進。還有大型的消防車、直升機,以及消防員的服裝可體驗拍照。位於熱鬧的四谷三目丁站,交通方便,花個2~3小時,可再安排其他景點,算是個中繼站。 
  • Museum about Japanese Fire Department. Very detailed everything, could not follow everything very well, but was still worth a visit.

  • I highly recommend this. Worth a visit, on a rainy day or on the way. Next to the metro station, educational and fun. Best of all, it is for free.
  • Great to for kids on a rainy day. Lots of interactive exhibits to keep them entertained. Top floor has a nice eating area with a good view out over Tokyo. Best of all it's free.
  • Lovely place to learn about fire prevention. Free entrance
  • Nice for kids. Also interactive exhibitions. Free. Easy access.
  • Kids had tons of fun here! And it's free!!!
