Enjoy your virtual train journey in Omiya
You can see old sleeping cars. Moreover, you can buy some famous Ekibens (Lunch boxes sold at train stations ) that are sold at various stations across Japan.
Our choice was the Tan ton bento from Sendai station.
We ate this special lunch box in one of the countless old trains. There were some trains in the field of this museum. You can enjoy your lunch in them without actually riding one.
How to access the railway museum in Omiya
You should take a new shuttle to the railway museum from Omiya station.
The Omiya station is not that small, the reaching the platform of the new shuttle is a “little bit” difficult.
