Immerse yourself in the world of police work with interactive exhibits that allow you to experience the work of police officers in a simulated manner, using animation-based video works.

But that’s not all – the Police Museum also offers a chance to snap a photo with a motorcycle, a patrol car, and even a helicopter, all of which are on display in the museum. And the best part? Admission is free!

For our foreign visitors, the main exhibits are labeled in English, and sound guides are also available for loan. So come, take a journey through the history of Japan’s police force, and leave with a newfound appreciation for the men and women who serve and protect.
