Miraikan - The National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation 日本科学未来館

2-3-6 Aomi, Koto City, Tokyo

Odaiba's most educational attraction focuses on the frontiers of science

Journey to Japan's national science museum, nicknamed "Miraikan," to learn about humanity's relationship to the universe and the cutting-edge technologies taking us into the future.


  • The permanent exhibitions have recently undergone significant changes for the first time in seven years. New exhibitions highlighting robots, the Earth’s environment, and old age will open on Nov. 22, 2023.
  • Special limited-time exhibitions are geared towards both kids and adults, with past exhibitions showcasing the art of Disney, mammoths, life on the moon, and more.

"Geo-Cosmos," the Miraikan Museum's most iconic exhibition, is a stunning three-dimensional rendition of Earth as it shines in outer space. It has a resolution that exceeds 10 million pixels. The model also displays images of clouds flowing across the screen that reflect current geographical data taken by satellites each day, allowing you to see Earth's current state. At the Dome Theater, enjoy another three-dimensional video display, projected onto the Dome's roof, of "The Man from the 9 Dimensions," a work centered on the theme of "The theory of everything." Head over to the planetarium to enjoy another work, "Birthday - What Links the Universe and Me," to witness beautiful, realistic images of space.

Miraikan is located in Odaiba, surrounded by abundant attractions and shopping, including indoor arcade and theme park Joypolis, DiverCity Tokyo Plaza, and Rainbow Bridge. Consider spending an entire afternoon and evening shopping, playing, and taking in the beautiful sights across Tokyo Bay.
