  • Compared with iron Hiroshi's Omiya, Nagoya linear Museum building itself is so widely felt. But to the steam locomotive and may be larger. Eat in the main building is a Bento sold space is tight. Sitting in a vehicle near the umekoji steam locomotive Museum is relatively free, so you can eat... There was a sense of nostalgia, or bring the Osaka Science Museum exhibit. Simulation relation is the lottery. He was wrong because God is not the feeling of disappointment to families with children I wouldn't be easy. Food Court is prepared to wait.
