  • Special

Chiyoda City is full of places to visit and make memories with your family. Not only just entertainment, there are many spots and shops that will also help you learn and discover. We visited some of those family-friendly spots with Chiyoda's tourism ambassador, Rilakkuma and its friends.

Science MuseumLearn while experiencing the wonder of science at the “Science Museum”


"The first place Rilakkuma and its friends headed was the Science Museum.
It is a museum where you can use exhibits and workshops to deepen your understanding about a variety of science, from technology close to our daily lives to big natural mechanisms. "

  • "The exhibition rooms are located on the second through fifth floors, and separated in to 26 booths.
    On the second floor you can learn mainly about vehicles through simulations of driving a variety of vehicles such as motorcycles and trucks in the “Waku Eco Motor Land,” and the “Bicycle Plaza.”
    The third floor is focused on energy, through the “Denki Factory,” showing the mechanisms of motor rotation and transmission, and “Atomic Station Geo-Lab,” which explains about electronic power. "

"You can also learn by playing, at “Science Stadium,” where experiments take place right before your eyes, and booths like “Construction World,” where you can learn about earthquakes and how buildings can withstand them.
Within the facility there is also a museum shop and restaurant. It seems that Rilakkuma and its friends were able to have and learn about technology while moving their bodies. The Science Museum, with its design to stimulate curiosity may be just the place to get kids interested in science."
