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.

A slight walk to get there, but if you get a chance you can come here via the East Imperial Gardens to break up the walk. Free entry if you have a Grutt Pass. the museum is spread over quite a few levels each with...More

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

This piece is very inspiring and interactive for Science lovers, even in the absence of English. Many exhibits are new ( 4th , 5th floor). Because they are done in an interactive manner, we were able to try out and think of the logic behind,...More

I felt quite out of place here - many of the exhibits are not in English and it seemed geared much more towards children. I wasn't enjoying the experience so I left early. It was tearing more about basic scientific principles rather than frontier technology.

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.
