The Tokyo Toy Museum is located in Yotsuya, which is close to Shinjuku. While the name says it is a museum, there are plenty of toys for kids to play and only one small area which is only a display. In today’s world where many toys are electronic and plastic, this a great place for kids to experience older style wooden toys. They even have a box filled with wooden beads which kids can dive into. There are puzzles and toys which can amuse older kids and adults alike.
