Railway Museum

Trains of Every Size and Shape
Not too far from the Bonsai Museum is the Railroad Museum. Located in Saitama, the museum naturally attracts both historians and children and it's a quick trip from central Tokyo.

While I'm neither of those demographics, I genuinely enjoyed my visit here. Before getting up close and personal with larger-than-life trains, there is a tiny village where you can see several types of trains including one or two high-speed ones.

There are also a few simulator rides for children, although this was probably my favorite part. I suggest doing some research before arriving through because many of the information is only available in Japanese. Even so, you can still get a feel for what it was like to travel on some of these old trains.
