Lonely Planet review

Under the tracks in the eastern suburb of Kasai, the Metro Museum chronicles the history of the Tokyo Metro from the first subway in 1927 (it connected Asakusa with Ueno) to the opening of the Fukutoshin Line in 2008. Visitors can pile into a couple of early Ginza and Marunouchi Line cars along with mannequins in period costumes, watch a 3D video of how tunnels are built and marvel at a multilevel model train set (shows at 11am, 1pm, 2pm and 3.30pm).
