Discover all there is to know about the often-overlooked logistics industry at Tokyo's Museum of Logistics, the first museum of its kind in Japan! Just a short walk from Shinagawa Station, this museum traces the history of the Japanese logistics industry from the Edo period (1603–1867) to the present. See how Japan went from setting up post stations in ancient times, to using more modern tools and equipment during the Meiji era (1868–1912), to even more efficient methods in the postwar Showa era (1926–1989), and finally, to the speedy, ultra-modern systems of today. With not only historical documents, but also fascinating displays, replicas, artifacts, photos, and even interactive and hands-on exhibits, this museum is an eye-opening look into a very important industry that has supported and shaped people's lives for centuries.
