This shiny metal building in the Odaiba District is also known as the “Future Museum.” The National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation is a great place to explore Tokyo's high-tech side and a fun excursion for both kids and adults.
Exhibits are based around four major themes: "Global Environment and Frontiers", "Technological Innovations and the Future", "Information Sciences and Technologies for Society" and "Life Science and Humans." All exhibits are explained in Japanese as well as English and volunteer staff answer questions and conduct scientific demonstrations.
A large area is dedicated to earthquakes, a huge issue in Japan, and here you can watch real time seismometers across the country vibrating. An enormous Geo-cosmos globe shows global weather patterns as they happen. The most popular exhibit however is ASIMO, a humanoid robot created by Honda who can walk, run and interact with humans.
