This event has ended.

*As our preventive measures in light of the imminent spread of new coronavirus, Mori Art Museum have been temporarily closed since Saturday, February 29.

Calling all rail buffs! The entire 52F of the Roppongi Hills Mori Tower will be transformed into a train lover’s paradise in a railway-themed event of unprecedented scale, made possible by the cooperation of all seven JR operating companies, plus Tokyo Metro, Tokyo Metropolitan Bureau of Transportation and private railways. Pivotal to the exhibition will be items not usually on view even at Japanese railway museums and made available especially for the event, in displays including a recreated station and ticket gates from the state-owned JNR era; artworks and installations looking back on Japanese rail history, and a huge range of ephemera including train headboards, timetables and uniforms, all combining to trace the journey of Japanese rail in a show bookended by the Olympic years of 1964 and 2020. Located 250m in the air, as well as providing the perfect setting for “Tenku (Sky) Station,” this hands-on, immersive exhibition offering fun for all ages will feature food, travel, animation, games and technology with connections to Japan’s distinctive railway culture.
