Kitanomaru Garden is a lush area facing the Imperial Palace. This vast park is home to a handful of lovely museums. One of them, the Science Museum, is a facility that is suited for children and adults alike. Deepen (or refresh) your understanding of science while having a lot of fun!
See, touch, and hear science!
Five floors packed of fun exhibitions await you at the Science Museum. It’s a place where you can immerse yourself in the world of science. You are allowed to touch or operate many of the exhibits.
Every Saturday, the museum holds a live science show by researchers, introducing the fun of science through projections on a dome-shaped screen with a diameter of 10 meters. Some of the shows are offered in 3D.
One of the highlights of the exhibition is the area called “Works”. You can observe the staff’s experiments up close in a large laboratory setting. Especially, the huge soap bubble experiment is exciting!

Tired after running around the museum? It’s time for a Japanese classic: katsu curry!
Hinoya Curry offers the kind of curry that Japanese people have nostalgic feelings for. But this restaurant, Hinoya Curry Kudanshita, is especially popular. So it comes as no surprise that it won the Kanda Curry Grand Prix, crowning the best curry in ‘Curry Town’ Kanda!
First, buy a meal ticket. You can choose your favorite toppings. Then, hand the staff your ticket, and sit at the long counter.
Hinoya Curry has a lot of specialty menus, but we definitely recommend you try the classic Katsu Curry (curry with a fried cutlet)! The juicy battered crispy meat and the mellow, spicy curry are meant for each other. True harmony!
