These photos I took are the Tokorozawa Avitation Museum in Saitama Prefecture.
The first Japanese aviation ground was build in this place in 1911.
The first flight was only about 800 meters, All the aviators had taken flying lessons there.
So this place is called ” the birthplace of Japanese aviation ”
You can see various old airplanes. Of course you can ride some planes and try a flying simulator.School kids also come there for class trip
There are large parks, tennis courts, ball stadium and stages around the museum.If you bring a lunch box, you can play there all day.
This museum has been closed since the earthquake in order to saving energy but this museum will open from today. :smile:
