Tokorozawa Aviation Museum
The Tokorozawa Aviation Museum (所沢航空発祥記念館 Tokorozawa Kōkū Hasshō Kinenkan?) is a museum located in the city of Tokorozawa, Saitama dedicated to the history of aviation in Japan. It contains aircraft and other displays (many of which are interactive) and an IMAX theatre. Located on the site of Japan's first airfield which started operations in 1911 with a flight by Yoshitoshi Tokugawa, the original single runway is still visible and has been incorporated into a larger multifunction park adjacent to the museum.
