Kyoto Railway Museum
The Kyoto Railway Museum recounts the historic stages of the modernization of Japan's rail network.
The Kyoto Railway Museum is one of Japan's largest railway museums. You can discover the evolution of the history of the country's railway, ranging from the first steam locomotives to the shinkansen, the high-speed trains. In the first part of the exhibition, visitors will find themselves in front of an impressive collection of locomotives, accessories and railway models. Interactive activities such as taking control of a miniature train and making a journey around the diorama are offered to the public. From the top-floor terrace of the building, you can enjoy a magnificent panoramic view of the railway lines.
