Head back in time at the Seibuen Amusement Park in Saitama — it’s a chance to experience Showa-era Japan. Modeled after the culture and design of the 60s, you can savor everything from classic food to fashion.

If you love the glimpses of retro Japan you’ve been catching in the city, this is the place for you.

While the main theme of the park is retro Japan, there are still plenty of modern rides offering thrills. The rides are family oriented, with a mix of popular characters and classic fairground gems. Children and adults alike will enjoy helping Ultraman save the earth, or dodging attacks from an angry Godzilla. Once you’ve caught your breath, relax with a whirl on the beautifully decorated merry-go-round, or the swinging trapeze.

There are plenty of other beloved Japanese characters to see — Atom awaits on his trip to the moon nearby. Young detectives can rack their brains over the mystery of Zenitendo’s candy store. And don’t miss the Seibuen mascots, Leo and Laiya, on their rides. For one last trip down nostalgic roads, finish at the Sunset Festival Street, where you’ll play traditional fairground games with your coins.

Seibuen shopping

If you’d rather relax than ride, the Seibuen Amusement Park has something for you too. The Yuhi no Oka shopping street is a replica of a 1960s shopping street, with stores and restaurants built into houses. You can shop for candy, clothes, and coin pouches as you bustle down the street. If you need a break, stop in at one of the many cafés serving classic snacks and drinks. And don’t leave without joining in with the Boogie Woogie Festival — where you’ll join the residents dancing and singing.

Buying tickets to Seibuen

You can buy tickets to Seibuen online or at the door, but we recommend buying in advance to skip the queues. You can pick up a one-day pass for ¥4,900 for adults, and ¥3,600 for children between 3 and 11.

Seibuen uses a unique currency inside the park, so you’ll need some for any shopping you might do. You can buy a joint one-day pass and in-park currency bundle from their website (link in Japanese), as well tickets for two rides not included in their regular one-day pass. You can also buy this currency inside the park, at the ticket office, Yuhigaoka Post Office, and Ticket Center.
