Your kids would love it ! – Tokyo Toy Museum

tokyo toy museum

Hi there. I am Masa.

I visited Tokyo Omocha museum (Tokyo Toy Museum) with my two daughters aged 4 and 6.

They have been there this summer, I was a first timer to there.

Here is the link to this museum

The museum building is a former public elementary school which once closed down due to the lack of students and then remodeled to museum a few years ago.

There are NO computer games, no Nintendo DS,  Wii or iPad etc.

Many toys are very traditional, created and made of wood.

That is a museum where we can not only watch toys  but we can also play with toys.  Needless to say my kids, actually I myself really enjoyed Tokyo Toy Museum.    I played some board games with my daughters, so much fun!

At the reception we booked workshop that is for making simple toy with their conductor.

My daughters made small paper crafts and drawings. They took back them home. It took about 20 minutes.

There are some staffs who help us how to play with toy.

When we could not realize how to use, it is better to ask their staffs. They are volunteer staffs and very helpful.

Finally we spent more than four hours there.

If you have a spare time and you are with your children, I recommend you to visit there!

There are some staffs speak English. Let them know by telephone that you are coming in advance, they can arrange staffs.

The museum is 5 minutes’ walk from Yotsuyasanchome station on Tokyo Metro Marunouchi line. Admission is 700 yen for an adult, 500 yen for a child.

They also have a package ticket 1,000 yen for one adult plus one child.

They close on Thursday. (You should join our Route B tour in stead!)

There are also Shobo Hakubutsukan (Fire museum) next to Yotsuyasanchome Station. Fire department is operating it.

But, sorry I have never been there.
