If you're a train lover then this has a ton of actual trains for you to look at. If you're an engineer looking to learn about Maglev then there's enough to keep some interest but overall not as good. They had one room with detailed explanation of Maglev and some good experiments that show how the N-S magnets actually levitate... More

A museum to learn about engine development and train history. Lots of real train models, including ancient engines. Too bad the simulation game is only by lucky draw and we couldn't get a place. There are however plenty of other games and show rooms for children. Good for both adults and kids.

I love trains, my wife does not. Even she was willing to stay for multiple hours because there is so much to see and do. Diorama room was AMAZING. Tokyo to Kyoto was represented. The live guide narration just added to the ambiance. The detail and craftsmanship that went to all the models was awesome. The world record holding trains... More

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
