    Happy Japan Railroad day. This is the day when Japan celebrates it’s rail system which is probably the most advanced in the world and probably the most accessible in the world.

    Because Covid-19 has messed thing up a bit for travel, why not get your old toy trains out to celebrate.

    And to you as well!

    If you are interested in the history of trains in Japan, be sure to check out the The Railway Museum in Saitama (just outside Tokyo).

    They have a very detailed set of exhibits including many historic trains. All exhibits are easily viewable from a wheelchair and a number of the trains have ramps up to them so you can explore the insides as well.

    There are elevators and accessible washrooms and all stations you use to get there are fully accessible as well. There is a toilet for guide dogs as well.

    Here is the museum English website: https://www.railway-museum.jp/e/

    And this PDF also shows the map and toilets etc: https://www.railway-museum.jp/pdf/flmap_eng.pdf

    Toot toot!
