    Very good science museum and Planetarium. Super kid friendly with lots of activities and things for them to do.

    Before you go I would check on making any type of reservations for special things in the science lab. (i.e. when we there on a Sunday, kids were building rockets, but you needed a reservation)

    If you don't speak/read Japanese, some of the exhibits have English and you can generally get the idea. However if you really want to get into the details probably not much luck.
    A lot of different topics are presented: Space, Science, Life, Geology, Machines, Body
    My 5 year old was already asking when we could go back.

    The planetarium did have ear pieces that had English translation during the show.

    If you would go more than once, I would also recommend getting the annual pass.
    Very reasonable price.

    Visited this place as a part of a conference and really impressed on what they did in this place. Please note that I am not sure whether this place is really open to public (maybe part of it).

    In this campus ground, there is a patch of forest, the Tanashi forest, that is used to study and do research on many things about the forest plants in Japan. Within this forest, there is also an experimental patch where the students and researchers do experiment related to the agroforestry and ecology of the forest. You might need to contact someone to know whether you can enter or get a guided tour though. I did heard that this campus is open to public during some special activities, like learning about the woods for children and parents. But please call the receptionist to get more information about it.

    Also part of this facility is an institute belong to University of Tokyo (U-Tokyo) that focused on studying the agriculture practices and technology. They have a small storage room that also acts as a museum (this probably open to public) that showcase many agricultural tools, starting from the very traditional one to a bit more modern (around 1990s). There are also experimental fields that students and researchers used to do their study on many crops, like rice, wheat, persimmon, etc.
