I am glad I took the one hour tour of this museum. Although it is in Japanese, what we see and do are self explanatory. By "do", I am referring to the few drills we get to do: how to use a fire extinguisher, how...More

消防車や消防機材等が一同に会した博物館で、特に子供向け、ファミリー向けです。しかし、江戸から明治、現代に向かって変遷、進化する消防関連のシステムや道具の陳列は、むしろ大人の方が興味深く鑑賞できるかもしれません。特に、地下の消防車(明治・大正から現代に至るまで)は、乗り物やメカニック好きにはたまらないでしょう。このビルだけでも数時間は楽しめるのに、入場料は無料ですので、休日をお手頃に過ごすにはうってつけの場所でしょう! 2階は四谷消防署の事務所になっているため、原則立入禁止。最上階は展望室になっています。10階程度の高さですので、展望室としてはやや味気ないように感じます。ただ、展望室のみ飲食物の持ち込みが可能ですので、展示室を一通り回り、休憩する時に利用するといいでしょう。 It is a museum where fire trucks and firefighting facilities are exhibited, and it is mainly for children and families. You can enjoy not only the transition of those facilities from the Edo period to the present age, but also the detail and...More
