If you are a train fan this is the tour for you! It was an amazing day ranging from the museum and history of train travel to visiting the shops in Tokyo. Really glad I was able to spend the day with Akira and learn about Japan's train travel history. Really glad he turned me onto other museums in Japan to see. JH
