  • The Aviation Museum at Kokukoen Park has several older planes and helicopters which kids and adults can board as well as sit in the cockpits. It's not a bad way to get a feel for what sitting in these vehicles would be like, but is probably more fun for the kids and is especially popular for posing for pictures (there are even kid-sized pilot and aviator costumes for the kids to wear while taking shots). There are also several exhibits on flight and aerodynamics (Japanese only), and for a little extra money you can watch a brief, unrelated 40-min CG movie. Just outside the museum are displays of older planes, a large picnic area, and usually lots of hobbyists flying kites, gliders, and more.
  • Very great place for viewing and studying aviation technologies. Also some nice aviation related exhibits.
  • Awesome place to visit. Contains an amazing amount of History and science, however it is not the actually on the Airfield used by the Japanese empire in World War II
  • Great place... A small but beautiful collection with plenty of interactive displays and simulators. Fantastic IMAX add on cinema too. Well worth it. A long trip though, make plenty of time.
  • Small aviation museum, nice displays. For the aviation enthusiast worth checking out if you are in the area. Kid friendly, with interactive educational exhibits. Some aircraft displays you can go inside aircraft
