Visitors with an interest in Japanese industrial design can trace the evolution of mobile-phone fashions through the years at this mini-museum devoted to the history and culture of mobile communication. Exhibits span the decades from massive shoulder-mounted models (introduced in 1988), getting smaller and smaller though the years up until the smart-phone era, after which they reverse course and get larger and larger.

Although it may not merit a special trip on its own for anyone but mobile-phone fanatics, this is one of several museums and other attractions in the Ryogoku area, and admission is free.
