  • Fun, interactive, staff are friendly and speaks enough English to provide guidance re: using the train conductor simulator.  more »
  • This museum is located next to Kasai Station on the Tokyo Metro Tozai Line and costs 210 yen per adult. When you enter the museum, you will see subway cars on the Marunouchi Line, which were actually operated, and the first subway car in Japan. It is powerful when i see it from the outside, and i think that it was good to go because there is an exhibition about the history and the mechanism of the subway which can ^^ taste the atmosphere in the car when entering inside. Here are two things that i was personally impressed with and that i was glad to see. The first is a cross section of the subway tunnel that was in the exhibition. When I saw this very huge and amazing Σ(I'm surprised), I realized the size of the underground tunnel again and was impressed by the technical capabilities of digging the tunnel. The second is the driving simulator of the Chiyoda Line. The scenery seen from the driver's seat was the same image as the actual subway, and the inside of the car which shook in conjunction with the operation was super real. I can actually drive while receiving guidance, but it was difficult as expected (^_^ ;), it was a good experience☆
