- The field of logistics is pivotal to both daily living and to business. The Logistics Museum, which opened in 1998, inherited the collection of the Nippon Express Museum. More than 12,000 articles on transportation plus 40,000 pictures documenting the history of Nippon Express form the bulk of the museum's holdings.
The history of Japan's logistics is displayed on the first floor while the second floor serves as both a reading area and a multimedia room. Do not miss seeing a leather-padded letter box pillow. Edo period messengers slept on these to prevent anyone stealing the confidential documents within!
