My 2 year old son love this place and there are many things to like about this attraction (not in any particular order): 1) Free entry 2) Basement entrance is connected to one of the many tunnels, hence, you can get here from the train station without getting wet 3) A few older fire trucks on display and even helicopters....

It's a fire museum. So a bit of history of fire fighting in Edo (Tokyo) for the adults and lots that amused both a fifteen month old and a five year old.

Interactive and historical. Great for kids, especially those enthralled by firefighting. It is also free. Worth seeing if you are in Shinjuku.

If you get stuck with a rainy day, then head to the Fire Museum. It's free and there is plenty for your young kids to see and explore.

i read the reviews and thought that this would be awesome but i was disappointed. it's not very interactive for kids, and honestly i think they'd have more fun in a playground or park

I loved this museum because it tells the history of fire engines in Japan and all the technology put there to bring this particular field to the right standards that the country is thriving to achieve.

Neighborhood Profile
Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this day, and there are long-standing restaurants with geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.
