What to Expect

It'll be my pleasure to guide you to The Railway Museum in Omiya city. It is very popular among Japanese especially for children and railway fans. I recommend children and railway fans from abroad to visit there.

At the museum, you can learn the history and technology of railway in Japan, enjoy the exhibitions of many previously actually used train cars, experience train operation using interesting simulators, etc.

The museum's big collection of formerly used train cars includes steam and diesel locomotives, and retired Shinkansen (Bullet train), passenger and freight cars. Many of them can be entered or viewed from under.

The eatery and rooftop garden provide nice views of trains in service passing by. There are also an outdoor jungle gym and play areas for children, as well as an area with small tracks and mini trains, which visitors can try to operate (additional fee applies).

I have booked many tour guides in Japan in August 2015, and Mr. Shinichiro was one of my tour guides. I have to say he is the best tour guide out 6 guides I booked.He is well prepare, organize, and help you with anything you need. I booked with him all day Toykyo and all day Yokohama and both day, we have such a great time. His english was excellent. He even help me to resolve my limobus that I booked. I booked a round trip from the airport to hotel and hotel back to airport, but I have the dates wrong, I have it on the same day as when I arrived and leave. I try to explain to the guy at the limobus counter, but he didn't understand, so I asked Mr. shinichiro to help and he told don't worried everything is ok, its just a misunderstanding, the company will understand and will straighten with whole thing out. And they did. Thank you Mr. Shinichiro for your help. If you go to Tokyo you have to booked with Mr. Shinichiro. Once again thank you Mr. Shinichiro for a great tour, we enjoy every minutes of it.
