'Tokyo Transport' exhibition coming to Japanese museum
Tokyo has a long and interesting history when it comes to transport, which is evidenced by a current exhibition being held at a museum in the capital
The Tokyo Metropolitan Edo-Tokyo Museum has been hosting a collection of artefacts called 100 Years of Transportation in Tokyo since last month.
Starting on July 14th, the exhibition - which includes items showing the history of the roads and railway system in the Japanese capital - will continue until September 10th.
Entry to the museum exhibition costs 1,300 yen for adults, 1,040 yen for university students. The organisation also offers lower concessionary prices for younger children, and money off if the ticket is booked online.
Any success of the exhibition will have to be put down to a variety of bodies, as it has been organised by the Tokyo Metropolitan Foundation for History and Culture, the Yomiuri Shimbun, the Tokyo Metropolitan Edo-Tokyo Museum and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government.
