  • Shichifukujin. this year, seven lucky gods along the Sumida River had younger so was Higashi-mukojima Island station was previously visited Tobu Museum had close family is stopped in the afternoon. Museum entrance is under guard, turn right out of the station and track when 2 minutes towards the Asakusa. Admission is 200 yen for adults and 100 yen for kids and is conscientious. In front of the entrance of SL and May 4th demonstrations show one day. Makes sense SL does not work, but the wheel is spinning, and that it actually works. Other panoramic model size and number two, driving simulator, Tobu railway route map displays from the Meiji period to the present day. Had line ikaho and the Sun 馬返shi I heard for the first time. In winter father and little boy had so many visitors. If not big as a Railroad Museum for ōmiya, crowed with young children can play half a day. I think that diner is not the Mac in front of seven-eleven bought some snacks, eat at the shelter on the second floor.

  • Near Higashi-mukojima station and the access is very convenient. Without the effects of the weather, even a child could walk away. You can see slowly, because few customers. It is small in size, but each exhibit is worth a look.

  • Great little museum about trains in Japan. Great value for entry at just 200¥. Lots of interactive exhibits, however these are popular with young children.
  • Literally you won't get lost looking for this place cause as soon as you get off the train you can see directions to the Tobu museum. As soon as you get out it is there in plain sight! To get to Tobu museum you will have to walk down some stairs (it is underground), there wasn't any elevators when I visited.
  • Great value for money Y200. Lots of train simulators, retired carriages and model trains. Great for train fans and kids. There is also a ground level viewing platform that you can see the train at very close distance.
  • Good place to visit rainy day. Direct access from the station with 30 seconds.
  • Cheap. Kid friendly. Small.
