Do you like to visit museum? Do you like science? If you like both, there is great place to go for you! The place is actually one of the newest museums in Tokyo.
Hanging from the ceiling in the foyer, the Geo-Cosmos globe welcomes visitors into the Miraikan. The impressive National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation (Nippon Kagaku Mirai-kan) usually simply referred to as the Miraikan where is located in Odaiba area (close to Aomi station). The place offers a fascinating insight into Japan’s leading role in the field of technology.
A Super-HD model of the Earth six meters in diameter, with organic LED panels that project over 10 million pixels, the Geo-Cosmos displays a rotating series of maps, from up-to-date global weather patterns, to topics like “Human Migration,” “Train Systems” and “Tuna Migrations.” It’s as absorbing as it is gorgeous, and we could easily have spent an hour on the lounge chairs in the foyer, watching it spin. The museum is usually crowded but many of the exhibits ask you to take a number and assign you a time to return.
You can also meet Honda’s famous robot, Asimo, who performs every hour in the museum. You can definitely try to contact with him! There is also Miraikan’s dome theater for a 3D movie about the cosmos called Birthday. You feel like diving into the Milky Way. Interesting? Please check it out!
