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!

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.

The Kidzania experience in Kansai area, great fun for kids who can try out "careers" in different companies / jobs in a fun afternoon while discovering how to make foods or news reports ! Of course, a big heavy on advertising young and impressionable minds but overall still worth a visit, your kids will love it !

Zidzania is great because it is an fun educational place where kids learn how money doesn't magically come out of a ATM and you have to take good care of it. They did many jobs to earn money like policeman, Pizza maker, Pilot, and much more. They had a great time. And most of the people working there could speak... More

Our family visited Kidzania in Koshien twice during trips to Japan (once last year, once this year). It's a fabulous place for kids to learn and play. They are countless engaging activities for children to do (more than can be done in one day, hence our return trip). The staff are great with kids and language barriers for foreign children... More
