  • When I was a child, I was able to return to the reflux of the age by looking at the Shinkansen which was active in the age. The current Shinkansen is also streamlined and cool, but i have a lot of memories of the old Shinkansen.

  • Worth the 1000¥. Pretty cool hands on exhibits. Have multiple language handies to guide and interpret. I feel most of the information was translated well for English speaking visitors. Stored our luggage for the time we visited. Also free lockers for 100¥ deposit. Great gift shop, but expensive.
  • I really enjoyed this train museum! If you like trains then this is a see. Easy to get to from Nagoya station, ¥700 round trip cost on the Aonami Line. Admission is ¥1000 for adult. Lots of trains there that you can go in and interactive learning displays too. Customary gift shop on your way out.
