About Us

Visit the Tokyo Metro Museum

The world’s first subway was opened in London, Great Britain, in 1863. In Japan, the first line between Ueno and Asakusa measuring 2.2 km was opened for service on Dec 30, 1927.

Since then the subway network has continued to expand massively along with urban growth, to become a form of transport we cannot live without in our everyday lives.

This museum was built with the hope that students and the younger generation, and many people, will further their understanding of the Subway. From the history of the subway to the latest technologies, you can learn much in this “look, touch, move” interactive museum.

Discover something new, view things from different perspectives and see how the subway is closely entwined to our lives.
