Railway Museum in Omiya Japan
The Railway Museum in Omiya continues to be a significant force in the area. It is regarded as Japan’s most important national rail museum. It is also considered to be one of the best train museums in the world.
The Railway Museum has been displaying Japan’s historic & artistic treasures since October 1957. Under the management of Takuo Aoyagi, it gradually became an important cultural centre, attracting tourists from all over the world. In October 2007, the museum finally opened its new south-exiting building at Omiya, Saitama prefect, as the centerpiece of a massive 20th anniversary commemoration of the devastation brought about by world war. The main hall of the museum was renovated as well, and the new central building has been completely restored. The original windows were redone, and huge glass windows were added along the length of the platform.
The railway museums are located at the Meiji shrine in Omiya. The Meiji Shrine is one of the busiest shrines in the country. It was built during the reign of Meiji in the early nineteenth century. The impressive architectural features inside and out attract many people every day. Because of this, the number of visitors to the Meiji shrine is always on the rise.
The Meiji shrine is itself a major attraction within the town of Omiya. Another major attraction within the town is the Sanjuroji temple which happens to be the oldest temple in Omiya. The Sanjuroji Temple features a temple dedicated to the deity of Emperor Kenshin. The temple complex also includes a garden that boasts of beautiful flower gardens. The railway museum in Omiya also features a monument which was used by the Japanese during the early twentieth century as a Monument dedicated to the late Japanese premier Kichisaburo Aoki.
Another attraction within Omiya is its Sankei festival, which occurs in November and features elaborate ceremonies, rituals and presentations. Every year in November, the whole town of Omiya and surrounding areas transform into a festive celebration with street dances, traditional food, craft displays and other interesting cultural exhibits. This event is called the Sankei Festival. For those who enjoy watching wild animals on a leash, the roundhouse of the Meiji railway may be the place for you to watch a variety of animals. Some of these animals include deer, wild boar, bear, raccoon, fox, raccoon, otter, etc.
If you are interested in traveling to Omiya, then the best way to get to the town would be taking the train from Tokyo. Just make sure that you take a round trip ticket since it’s quite an expensive journey. The city museum is also accessible from the Tokyo station. If you want to see the beautiful gardens and trees near the station, then you can go to the Hachijojima gardens and view the natural scenery. After visiting all these attractions, you can easily relax and take a hot bath at the Chuo Koen station before catching your train back home.
