I went there as a part of an exchange program by Yamagata University. The museum has everything that explains how our world reached the present day. Young generation must visit there. Every basic sciences and phenomenon are explained very simply.

Check the schedule for exhibits before your visit. Seeing Asimo (robot) and other science things were amazing. An interactive museum with mind-blowing gadgets, space station and other things is a must when you visit Tokyo, it's close to lots of other things in Odaiba.

I looked up about AI before we head to Japan , and I saw that you can be interactive with an Android in this museum, that's why we headed there. It's a bit far from the city but not hard to reach. The price is...More

I wanted to visit this museum as I thought Japan is on the forefront of robotics. I have to agree with other reviewers that I have seen robots like Asimo before, for some years. But still then I found the museum interesting. You explore different...More

Odaiba is an entertainment hotspot with a giant ferris
wheel, concert halls, amusement arcades and lots of

hotspring that recreates old Edo-era ambiance and is
very popular with foreign visitors. Shiodome has
ultra-modern office buildings where you can often find
restaurants with a great high-rise view of Tokyo. The
