It is raining the whole day today so we went to Tokyo toy museum with my 2y old boy. The place is just perfect for his age and older! There are lots of different toys, mostly wooden toys that kids can touch and play with. There is also staff who takes amazing care of visitors and entertain children and show... More

We walk here from Shinjuku goenmae but it is a little off the beaten track for tourists. It was FULL of local families with their kids. The "museum" is 4-5 plays rooms with age appropriate toys spread across each room. Shoes off before entering the rooms! The toys are all wooden and really well crafted. Different play areas/stations within each... More

Our kids had a blast and it is definitely a great place for a rainy day activity. There is a gorgeous wooden forest indoors for kids to play and a giant ball pit where even adults can play in

I anticipate making this a quick stop but I ended up spending more than two and a half hours there with my two children (6 and 5) playing with all the cool wooden toys. My kids favourite was the German-made Weykick football game. The adults are equally entertained; there is a room where they've a couple of Othello boards laid... More

I travelled with my daughter and her two children, aged 5 and 3. Tokyo is not child friendly in some senses so letting the kids roam, explore and play without watching every move they made was relaxing for them and for us. They soon discovered how to play with toys that were new to them. We bought some wooden and... More

I brought my soon-to-be 2year old daughter on a week day afternoon. She loved trying out all of the toys in the "Good Toy" room. Other highlights were the toy kitchen, the baby play room, and the lovely older gentleman on staff who showed her how to play the games on the third floor. We'll definitely go back. I hear... More

The English name is a bit misleading in that you might think this is grander and more experiential than what it really is. When I think of "Tokyo Toy Museum" - i just think of something more engaging. Ok, now that i've said that - it's a nice hour none the same. The facility is located in what appears to... More

Whilst travelling with my sister's family - three boys under 5 - we made our way here. It was an amazing end to the day. The spaces throughout this museum were very inspiring and inviting for the children. Lots to do, hands on and interactive and great for adults as well. Particularly enjoyed the retro games room, which was actually... More

Very cute place with lots of toys on display and those to play with. Great for 3-7 year olds. My 9 year old was a bit bored, but my 3 yo loved it. Shame there were no english translations. Have to pay to get in. worth the trip if you have little ones.
