This was not an easy place to find. While the address says Nerima (and there is a Nerima Station) you may be confused as there is a JGSDF base in Nerima but NOT the site of this museum. I'm sure the sentry at the front of the base was a little puzzled when I asked him for directions to the exhibit. You actually need to go to the Wakoshi stop and walk about 15 minutes or so. When you get out of the station, look for the map of the area and you will have a rough idea where it is. The museum is on a base which is located across from a gas station and McDonalds. Admission is free. You don't need to check in with the sentries that are directing traffic - you can just walk straight to the museum which will be on the right with some parking spaces in front. The subway line I took was the Tobu line, exit Wakoshi.

The place shows real tanks and helicopters used by the Japanese ground defense force. And sometimes you may see helicopters flying by this center. Though it is quite far away from the nearest train station, it didn't disappoint me as a military fan. One important thing is to check the entry of the center on your map, or you will have to waste lot of time finding it.

The Eastern Army is based in the very North of Nerima. I want to make clear that this isn`t intended as a touristic attraction. The aim of this PR center is more into getting new recruits.

However, this shouldn`t be the problem. The center has no direct connection to public transportation. I have decided to walk the full way between the camp. I was impressed how much military you can squeeze into the world biggest metropolitan region. However, there is also driving a bus toward the end of the camp. From there you will still need to take a little walk in order to reach the PR center.

So, what is what you will see? You will see bombs, military arms, tanks and much more. The selection is small but great to see a little bit of everything and the best is that you can try several stuff.

You can wear backpacks or bulletproof vests to get a sense for weight, you can use a flying simulator which actually moves and much more.

You will also have some propaganda videos which are also interesting to watch.

If you don`t mind the walk you can get a free attraction which is a little unusual but lots of fun.
