This is an interactive railway museum that both children and adults can enjoy in Nagoya City, Aichi Prefecture. Focusing mostly on the Tokaido Shinkansen; from steam locomotives to magnetic levitation trains, there are 39 original vehicles on display. The shinkansen driving simulator allows you to experience operating a train in a life size driver’s cab while watching a big screen (Users are selected by lottery). The railway diorama is one of Japan’s largest and is both impressive and popular.
