How to Get There
The park is an easy 3-minute walk from Kinjofuto Station, which is 24 minutes from Nagoya Station on the Aonami line.
Getting on track
The SCMAGLEV and Railway Park offers education and entertainment in equal measure, with enthralling exhibitions detailing the advances in Japanese high-speed rail over time.
Walk around a collection of 39 retired train cars—from steam locomotives to the newest designs of the magnetically levitated bullet train (maglev). You can view them from below or get inside them. Get up close to some of the world speed record breaking trains.
Education and evolution
Children will be thrilled with the life-sized train simulators where they can drive a bullet train and give safety announcements for regular trains. In the Experiencing Room, kids can use models to see how the science they have learned in school is put into practice in the world of rail travel.
In the educational zones, you can learn about the history and evolution of the high-speed railway in Japan and see historical documents, tools, and equipment from bygone eras of train travel.
