It is located close to a subway station next to the bay. There is an entrance fee. The place is not very large. There is a new Maglev train displayed. You can also try the simulator with some additional fee.

This is a must for anyone with even a passing interest in Japanese retired train cars and world record setting shinkansen. After visiting this railway museum at Nagoya (with one of the largest train dioramas), I had a quick look at the railway route and saw a station with the name of Arakogawa Koen. The last word of that station's... More

A dream for a passionate like me.. You could find the complete Shinkansen collection and many other traditional trains.. A real plus is the Shinkansen Zero simulator that let's you travel at 500Km/h.. There is also and a very huge maquette with a wonderful reproduction of a train network..

This park shows you the rich history of the train systems in japan. In addition to the fascinating history (which i liked the most) about the Shinkansen (bullet train), how it work and different illustration activities on it (very helpful for kids). I highly recommend it, specially if you are engineer. I recommend also to visit from morning as you... More

It's a place where you easily spend 2, 4 or 6 hours. So much fun, so much info, so much history, present and future combined here. I am pretty sure I may not see such amazing and timely trains in Europe until 2-3 generations from now. I was often as impressed here as I was when I saw a space... More

This museum is quite a distance from the city, about 20-25 min by train, and it is next to the Messe fair ground. It is filled with trains (so train enthusiasts would love it) from the past to the very new, and explanations were in English! Worthwhile taking your time to read everything, and peeking into the carriages. However, if... More

If you are starting from the Nagoya Station then it is very easy to visit as it is at the end of the line on the Aonami Line. When you purchase your tickets then you can also pay an additional ¥500 for an audio guide in at least eight different languages. I got it but the signs on each train... More

Amazing Railway museum by JR Central. Located in the suburb of Nagoya, but have easy access from Nagoya Train Station by a direct commute/express train within 30 mins. But this line only accept Suica or local smart card or cash ticket, no Icoca or any other smart card. The museum is supper nice with great selection of 1:1 size train... More

We spent two hours going through here. Gave a really comprehensive description of railway expansion in Japan. Fun train driving simulation. Be aware that it is closed on some Tuesdays.
