KidZania is a city founded by the children of the world where they can be leaders and learn about society while having fun. Kids get to role-play as Adults at more than 90 jobs and activities using real-world tools and equipment.

Complete with shops, vehicles and a functional society, KidZania is a 2/3 scale city just for Kids. Choose an activity at the TV Station, Airplane, Bank or any of the over 60 pavilions. Put on a uniform and get to work!

★What to do?

First, choose a pavilion where you want to work. After you finish your job, you get paid in the local currency, "kidZos". Use your kidZos to shop and pay for services.

At most activities, you will be creating something new. Whether it is food from the Pizza Shop or Bakery, or a DVD from the Fashion Show, what you create is yours to keep!

★Let's Start!

Just like any country you will travel to, the more you plan before you enter, the better. Upon entering KidZania, choose a pavilion and get started!

★Getting Tickets

KidZania Tokyo operates two shifts daily.

・1st shift:9:00am - 3:00pm

・2st shift:4:00pm - 9:00pm

Congestion is expected. Please come here as early as possible!

Book your tickets online ahead of time to make sure you get in on the day and time you wish. Same-day ticket sales are limited and subject to capacity.

★Using English

Though most Activities are in Japanese, a limited number are conducted in English every day. Regardless of language skill, all Kids are encouraged to try any activity they wish!

We raced to get there before 9 for English day last Wednesday and the place was almost empty! It filled up as the morning went on but by then my 3 Primary kids had signed up for the best activities - mostly cooking- and had a fabulous day. 4 hours was enough. Glad we went early.

Ok. So this is the place where your kid can actually "work" for the company they want. Do whatever that company of business do, from basic hospital to fashion industries and make up. The downsides are right there. 1. Prices are insane for the essentially participating in some ones ad campaign. You will be giving your kids ads, that you... More

It's a great place for children. Tickets are purchased ahead of time, per time slot. However, if you want to take full advantage of your visit, plan ahead the activities with your child. Some popular activities are very crowded, and children have to wait to participate "wasting their time". With only limited time to spend "slot time", this can be... More

Been to Kidzania in Bangkok and Singapore. This is the best! I was truly impressed that even liquid nitrogen was used in one of the station! Had a great day with 2 kids. Easy to get here and the mall it was located in was good for shopping as well.

It's a place that resembles real life. Kids get a credit card. They do tasks and jobs in the Kidszania world which earns them points that they can spend in Kidszania on that day or save them up over many visits. Parents can drop kiddies off but if your children are under 5 or 6 I suggest chaperone them. But... More

Our daughter had fun in Kidzania. Apparently the blockbuster hit are the ones with food that the kids made like Pizza, ice cream, sushi and the like. They only accept one reservation activity. We entered the place around 9am and tried the Pilot station. There are some places where they could speak in English while others in Japanese. Almost all... More

Okay, so I went here with a class of students and their mothers, so unless you come here with your own child, prepare to be bored. But if you do come here with your children, get ready for the defeating noise of the crowds. It's just like being in the heart of Osaka or Disneyland. Avoid if you can.
