This ticket provides the user access to discount travel via Shinkansen to the railway museum in Saitama and back to Tokyo. To get the ticket you need to know Japanese – clearly we do not but we have a friend who does!
We’ve been to a number of railway museums around the world, so it was great to visit this one. We’ve watched “Japanese Railway Journal” on NHK, so add that to the reasons for attending. For fellow train lovers… it was a great visit.
As you expect, when in Japan it’s an ekiben for lunch. Then a short ride for a mini Shinkansen
… and lots of trains to climb on!
There is also a train turntable which goes t ice a day and the train horn is blasted
There is limited English on the signs in the museum, but there is a guide available. Definitely worth a visit if you are a gunzel! It was a great day.
