  • Amusement park more than a than anywhere else! And the small one daughter said. Went to the part of the Chinese part of the week, part of the summer, three-day weekend, Saturday 2. That is part of the weekday school was parents ' day on Saturday, so I went to this day had a day school or were crowded. The part of the Saturday regulars? I lot experience, reserve a deftly, that many people feel a strong feeling is about, is thinking the same thing I... that was. Though crowded during summer vacation and holiday feel there were a lot of people who have come from afar and throw is great. (Only, is my impression.) 1 + star Flex pass is recommended. You can go through popular at the beginning of part 2, and enter from the first division, Star Flex pass, get priority, part of the, so reservations are not. (We are in it, I went to Hi-chew with sushi!)

  • Took two 10-year old girls there for the first time and they just loved it. Previous to this they'd really loved Universal Studios Japan but they said Kidzania beat USJ hands down. Compared to USJ the...  more »
  • In Friday's two-part entry three times every six months. And the third was a lot of people. But the children are always delighted! Adult a lot of kids would be happy watching experience has taught. Good luck however I think rates are a little higher, and get into two parts in a matter of hours, but I started at 19:00 small child is sleepy and started it, so every time 3 hour layover so regulated, will end with a experience of the four.

  • One of the best ideas I have ever seen! Not only kids have fun, parents can also enjoy their own time or with kids. Kids also learn the concept of work for trade of goods. Highly recommended this place and it's very clean too.
  • Way too expensive for what you get. Way too crowded. Chaotic job registration system and job schedule. No efficiency. Would not recommend. More crowded on weekends and holidays, yet the price is increased, meaning you pay more to do less. No sense. Job schedule could be posted online so that customers know which jobs are at what times. Instead, customers are left having to scramble from one job to the next, never knowing if they’ll make it in time for the next job or if the job has filled up for the day. Prior registration, either online or at the front desk, could streamline an otherwise chaotic task. A schedule of jobs and their times could easily be made and printed up, online and on paper, given that Kidzania has been around for several years now and should know how long each job takes. Very pisspoor organization. Very disappointing. It’s doubtful we’ll be coming back.
  • I think this amusement park is good for social education to children. They can be various kinds of workers through job experience. Children can be police officers, fire fighters, guard staffs, bank officer etc. There are a hundred jobs in the park.and after work, children can achieve salary in designated currency kidzo. They can buy various items with kidzo. Of course, they can store the salary in a bank designated in the park. This park is extremely polular. I recommend you to arrive here early time.
  • Quite unique this little town catered for kids. added bonus it is almost wholely in Japanese to give the kids an extra special experience
  • 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.
