Museum
“To start with, get yourself to Yotsuya Sanchome Station, head out of Exit 2 and walk into the Yotsuya Fire Museum, which is free of charge. You just have to pick up a visitor pass at the reception and return it at the end. We recommend taking the elevator to the top and then working your way down. For a free museum, this place is pretty great. The main attraction is a helicopter on the roof, which you can SIT IN! The place is a lot of fun for adults kids, as there are interactive exhibits—things you can pick up, buttons you can press, that sort of stuff. There’s also an anime corner where you can watch several cartoons that have something to do with fire safety, but are actually a lot better”
