[Tip] Panasonic Center Tokyo
Many of you might know the Miraikan in Tokyo which is the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation. It’s recommended in many guidebooks, but honestly it’s not as interesting as promised and there aren’t many non Japanese signs. But the shows and presentations like those of Asimo are quite interesting.
Recently, I discovered the Panasonic Center Tokyo. The ground level can be entered for free and it’s possible to discover future technology from Panasonic like the game Project Cars on a 4k television. Or you can compare the amount of energy produced by a solar cell with energy you made using a crank. Even more interesting is the 2nd and 3rd floor which is called RiSuPia, it costs 500 Yen, but this is included in the Grutto Pass.
There are many exhibits related to Physics or Mathematics and in a way that everything actually is a game that makes fun. It’s, like the ground floor, completely bilingual in English and Japanese, so that it’s easy to participate. Unfortunately, it wasn’t allowed to take pictures in the building.
One of my favourites was a room where you have to short different coloured balls, this task sounds simple but as the room’s light’s colour changes too, it’s quite challenging.
Panasonic Center Tokyo is an innovative interactive museum for any age and I’m totally sure that not only techies like it. As it’s located on Odaiba it can be combined with a visit of Miraikan or Madam Tussaud’s.
