KidZania Koshien, Nishinomiya

4.5
Kids learn how society works at KidZania Koshien, a children's theme park that engages young visitors in numerous activities. The massive park holds over 60 pavilions with complete shops, vehicles, and manufacturers--children can learn how to make pizza, pastries, and sushi; deliver babies; write news reports; drive airplanes; or work in banks. After finishing a job, a paycheck arrives in the local currency, "kidZos." Although activities are mostly conducted in Japanese, a limited number of English-language attractions are available. Shop for souvenirs in the gift shop selling exclusive KidZania merchandise. Given the extensive array of options, plan your visit ahead and reserve desired activities.

  • Children are able to see adults are children work experience, and fun. Every Wednesday is a day of English variations seemed have the English skills of our staff. Sausage made in situ, or eat a very enjoyable experience.

  • Children can experience a variety of jobs's future is a very valid place. I think that the theme park experience around, just for fun, however, in how to understand and is important to the healthy growth of children. I think if you lot in the whole country.

  • I took my class here on a field trip yesterday and it was really disappointing. Although the facilities and activities were all very cool and interactive, it was totally disorganized and the staff wasn't the least bit helpful. The system is really flawed. You need to sign up for activities one by one and the child needs to be present to do so, so you can't sign up for them on their behalf. You can't sign up for your next activity until the previous activity has finished, but there was a wait time of thirty minutes to an hour for each activity. In the mean time, while waiting there is literally nothing for the kids to do. I asked multiple staff members for help figuring out something for the kids to do while they waited, but no one gave me any real help. They just kept suggesting we do a "part-time job" (an activity that takes 15 minutes instead of 30), but none of them were available unless you waited an hour to get in... at which point it was too late. Another big problem was that the activities all had a capacity of somewhere between 3 and 6 children. I suppose this wouldn't be an issue if you came with only one child, but with an entire class it was impossible to get all the children in activities at the same time. I understand that limiting the capacity of each activity adds to the overall quality, but it would have been nice if Kidzania had warned us about this ahead of time, or provided a list of the capacity of each activity. Better yet, they should have organized a schedule for each of the school groups there to follow ahead of time to avoid this problem altogether. Overall I was really unimpressed with the place and my school will not be returning here.
  • Visited with our soon 4 year old daughter who loved the place. She usually don't want to do things without at least one parent peresent, but here it went really well and she had no problems doing activities on her own.
  • My kid who cant speak Japanese also enjoyed doing different tasks.
  • Great for kids to learn and have fun
  • Kidzania Koshien was a great experience. I learnt a lot about my future, and it also helped me with what kind of career I can be. I've been there many times, (because I'm a HUGE fan of that place) Hopefully I can be accepted to go there with my friend Yoshino on July 25 (Thurs) Still wait listed!! :'( Please accept us to go... (-_-) Double-Crossing my fingers!! :-(
