The Fire Museum in Yotsuya is a great place to visit with or without children. Starting on the upper floor it takes you through fire fighting techniques during the Edo period until present. There is a seating area on the 10th floor with vending machines. Fun place to visit.

Though there is lots to see. You really won't get much of a chance to take pictures or sit in any of the vehicles. So many kids. But hey...it was free and I am glad I went. Polite staffThe subway exits right into it.

My 2 year old son love this place and there are many things to like about this attraction (not in any particular order): 1) Free entry 2) Basement entrance is connected to one of the many tunnels, hence, you can get here from the train station without getting wet 3) A few older fire trucks on display and even helicopters....

It's a fire museum. So a bit of history of fire fighting in Edo (Tokyo) for the adults and lots that amused both a fifteen month old and a five year old. No one expects children to read or be interested in Tokyo's fire fighting history of what they're currently doing but for 0yen it certainly provided a bit of... More

Interactive and historical. Great for kids, especially those enthralled by firefighting. It is also free. Worth seeing if you are in Shinjuku.

If you get stuck with a rainy day, then head to the Fire Museum. It's free and there is plenty for your young kids to see and explore.
