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.

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.

Has per Tradition of the Japanese this is a very well organised museum, where you can see that the kids go there and learn what to do in emergency, earthquakes, really a go-in and see the Entrance fee is 0

i read the reviews and thought that this would be awesome but i was disappointed. it's not very interactive for kids, and honestly i think they'd have more fun in a playground or park

I loved this museum because it tells the history of fire engines in Japan and all the technology put there to bring this particular field to the right standards that the country is thriving to achieve.

Neighbourhood Profile
Shinjuku
Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.
