This new building house real trains, models that were groundbreaking for their time. You can take an upclose look at a 500 series shinkansen bullet train
(the first to travel more than 300 kph), or at trains whose seats fold out into beds.
Because Umekoji Park is very close to Kyoto Station
and the many railroad tracks that connect to it, plans are also in the works to give visitors a nice space to watch the in-service trains come and go.
