  • I used Tobu railway train, train, bus, etc. is a museum. None taken on the inside, it also into driver seats per train; Attractive to the good state of conservation of the exhibits. Railway Mania spent, even nostalgia, fun.

  • From Higashi-mukojima station is just around the corner. Empty here cannot be compared because it hasn't been the Railway Museum in Saitama, Japan, is the kids to run around (I don't run as much) wider. Is also located near the McDonald's Yachiyo-Shi re admission ticket if you have time to get out there were many who buys lunch, sushi and Daiei, are eating in. I am also happy style also brought welcome like the tables and chairs are provided. And as an aside to present the stub here at McDonald's will offer soft twist and potatoes.

  • A hidden gem. Great experience from the simulators and seeing the model trains move while operating it. Sufficient number of exhibits and simulators is well worth the 200 yen fee. The friendly staff did their best to make you enjoy all the exhibits.
  • A really nice museum, if you like trains it's a must. There are some simulators you can use too.
  • Great little museum to take kids who love trains.
  • Well worth a visit. The Tobu RailRoad features some of Japan's most beautiful trains.
  • fun place for who loves 🚄

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
