It was a cute place to go for some gyoza and crepes. The gyoza was very good and the English- only speakers did not have any trouble ordering. Didn't ride any of the rides but the atmosphere was fun.

We were in sunshine city so we decided to check it out, the ticket booth had the prices and rules written in English, when we went inside it turns out that all of the attractions are in japanese and you can't enjoy any of them if you don't speak and read the language, the place looked good and japanese people...

Went for the food (ice cream and gyoza) as recommended by some bloggers. Wasn't worth the entry fee and the expensive prices

My boyfriend and I wanted to come to Namja town because of its fun games, gyoza museum and the strange flavours of ice cream. What we found was that none of the games were accessible to English speakers; we walked around a whole section of the attraction trying to interact with the games before we figured out that you needed...

Spent about 2 hours here on a hungover day. The park is mainly for children but we managed to have a bit of fun. Entrance fee 500, around 3000-3500 if you want the "passport" ticket which allows you access to all the rides. We tried two rides, the mosquito shooting and the gun gunner - gun gunner was quite fun.... More

I was told to come here to try gyoza in gyoza museum. If that's your intent you should just turn back cuz it really isn't worth it. You have to pay entrance to get in like $4-5 dollars a person for gyoza that you can easily source anywhere on the street.

the food was great, but after paying the entry fee we realized that many of the rides required you to understand Japanese. Did i say the food was great?

Con: Admission fee regardless of just getting some food or desserts. But you can still walk around to look at some decorations. Pro: Great to bring children under 10. They will definitely enjoy themselves.

I visited the Namjatown at the end of February 2017. I had read some good reviews about the Namjatowns "Ice cream world" and all its exotic ice cream flavors and thought it would be interesting place to visit - wow, was I wrong! The "ice cream world" is situated inside of the Namjatown, so you have to pay the admission... More

Ikebukuro is an area of massive development. Several thousand tenants occupy two giant department stores and shopping malls, where all sorts of shopping and gourmet foods can be enjoyed. The 60-story building at the east entrance of the station, Sunshine City, is a landmark within Ikebukuro and features an aquarium, planetarium, theme park as well as an observation platform. The popular name for the western side of this area is "Otome Road" (Maiden Road) and there are many shops selling products related to anime with a female theme. It has rapidly become the worldwide headquarters for ‘otaku’ or geek culture.
