Tokorozawa Aviation Museum

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:

I live in Kawagoe-city Saitama-prefecture Japan. There are many traditional warehouses in Kawagoe. So many Japanese and the people from overseas come to sightseeing.

  1. My husband loves places like that. Since we won’t be able to go far on our vacation this year, I should put this museum on our list of “places to visit”. It’s kind of nearby for us :-)

  2. Nice. And you took some beautiful pictures at the museum. I also like the first one with the swirling clouds in the sky… very dramatic. :-)
    Finally catching up after taking time out to handle offline stuff. :-)
