This is one for the train enthusiasts! Tetsudo Hakubutsukan Museum is only a 1.5-hour train ride from Yokota Air Base. The railway museum holds 30 historical trains, equipment, and recreations of Tokyo and Niigata station platforms from the 50s with original electronic signboards, time tables, stairways and ticket gates. Don’t miss a chance to operate the drive simulators of steam locomotive and bullet train while you’re there!
