“A gem! Great for kids and parents alike.”
Reviewed 2 August 2011

This is a very small museum, but it's packed with fun for kids (and adults) who love trains and buses. There are simulators for driving trains (old and new), a bus and airplane, as well as a well-made driving simulator with model trains (there's a camera on the front of the model train that you have to watch while stopping the train at the station, etc.).

I suspect the parents were enjoying the simulators even more than the kids! We had a 2 & 3-y.o., and a 10-y.o. with us; the little ones enjoyed touching everything and the older child had a blast with the simulators.

The entrance fee is 100 yen for adults; 50 yen for children (elementary & middle schoolers); free for under 6 y.o. Even the ticket is fun: You buy a ticket at a machine and go through the turn stiles, just like a real train station.

Perhaps the only major disadvantage for non-Japanese speakers/readers is that everything is in Japanese only.
