  • Place golden crowd as much as possible avoid, in any of the 2-year-old son as much as possible, and tried to go in that room. Not crowded at all smoothly around, and could take over. Two adults 400 Yen we hustle son Riad. The location offers more names I don't know, but you can experience old steam locomotives, trains, model trains, dioramas, driving simulators and contents, the cost performance is very good. I think place encounters a child's interest, can play 3 hours.

  • 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.
