  • It is a small exhibit, about one floor of war artifacts and photos. They have limited English explanation. It took me about an hour to go there and I spent about a good 30 minutes there. It is worth it if you enjoy history, especially about the Second World War. This museum is not government funded, therefore it has its limit. It is definitive a go if you enjoy history. Make sure you have your google translator with Japanese installed before you go.
  • Highly underrated little Museum in East Tokyo. Really explains what happened to Tokyo on April 9th and 10th 1945.
  • Worth a visit if you live in Tokyo or got spare time when visiting. Not well laid out and little English signage (and a bit out of the way). However if you've read up on the raids over Tokyo and want to see some related exhibits firsthand it's a must see!
  • Tokyo air raids that can carefully. Article is small, but a reality. Will be given the opportunity to think about peace.
