Hara Model Railway Museum will be open on the second floor of the Yokohama Mitsui Building from July 10 (11 a.m. At his private house, which he has dubbed Shangri-La Train Museum, he has more than 6,000 train-related items, 440 hours of film and hundreds of thousands of pictures. The museum, which is operated by property developers Mitsui Fudosan, will exhibit 1,000 models from Hara’s collection.
Although he had a successful career as an engineer he has continued to build and collect model trains all his life.


To date, this collection has only ever been shown on an appointment basis, but this summer Hara will bring his toys out for the public. The location is fitting because 140 years ago, the port city of Yokohama was the site of the first railroad in Japan (it connected the city with Shimbashi Station in Tokyo). A carriage is about 80 cm long, so if it is seven cars long it will total 5.6 meters, which is big enough to truly appreciate the details as if it were an actual train. Hara’s son, Kento, explained that his father has never forgotten the joys of being child and he hopes that this spirit will be conveyed in the museum.
