The Police force is important in any country and Japan is no different. Located in Ginza is a museum that provides an overview of the impressive history of Tokyo’s Metropolitan Police force and entry is completely free. From Meji era (1868-1912) uniforms to confiscated Yakuza goods, the Museum offers a large range of exhibitions and an interesting day out. For younger visitors there is a police issue motorbike to sit on and uniforms to dress up in though I was more interested in the Katana swords upstairs. On the top floor there is even an area to learn through interactive computer equipment such a safe driving simulator. History and technology always mix well.
