Story & Recommendation
Enjoy Japanese train history first hand
The Kyoto Railway Museum offers a wide range of experiences to learn about Japan’s railway history. It reopened in 2016 on the premises where the Umekoji Steam Locomotive Museum was originally located. Since the theme of the museum is for visitors to learn the history of rail in Japan through five exhibitions, there are a lot of entertaining attractions in the museum, such as getting on an actual steam locomotive, taking photos of the former Nijo station building, and more. On the other hand, they are planning to develop some more fascinating attractions so you can enjoy the museum every time you visit. There are no airports or harbors in Kyoto city, so the railway became the core transportation among Kyoto's locals. So how about adding the museum to your itinerary as it’s close to Kyoto station?
