This is an interesting museum, I enjoyed most of the exhibits and hands on activities. Though my kids, 5 and 3, are still too young to understand real science, they still enjoyed the visit. Maybe when they are old enough to understand the descriptions, we...More

This would have been a very interesting science museum. If only we spoke Japanese. All info is in Japanese and there are no translations or headset options available. It is very hands-on, so it would have been awesome if we had the language skills.

If you have a rainy day while in Tokyo, this is a great place to go spend the day. There are lots of unique "things" to observe and there are several interactive activities available as well.

Very interesting place to visit. No end of entertaining mechanical, electrical and robotic displays for little ones and grown ups. Perfect family fun.

This museum is a ton of fun for kids. They have 4 floors, each focusing on different areas (electricity, building, kinetics, cars & motors, city planning, light, sound, etc). The kids were able to play with and manipulate almost every exhibit. The favorite was the...More

It was a long, hot walk from the station only to get there and find it was a students science project. We were put off because of that. We didn't go in or pay the 1000 yen charge, we were disappointed, although the outside of...More

This museum is definitely for children.... and probably better for Japanese children as there is very little English or any other language throughout. Somewhere you would take children if you were in Tokyo for an extended stay but not if you only had a few...More

Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around
the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in
Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a
photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old
Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this
day, and there are long-standing restaurants with
geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.
