Museum

This metro museum was opened in 1986. It is located underneath the elevated area of the Tokyo Metro Tozai Line’s Kasai Station. Admission tickets are purchased at a ticket machine like that which sells train tickets, and the entrance is designed to look like a ticket gate.
After passing through the entryway you are greeted by the powerful presence of the Marunouchi Line #301 railway car and the #1001 car, which was Japan’s first subway car and has been designated as an Important National Cultural Property. The cars are open for entry.
One of the most popular exhibits is the museum’s metro driving simulator. Guests can operate a train that is identical to those in operation and even experience the shaking and vibrations while driving!
A panorama with moving trains shows how Tokyo’s metro subway system operates, and it’s easy to lose yourself watching.
This museum is not only a wonderful experience for train lovers, but it is also a great place to enjoy learning about the metro system.
