Small Worlds Tokyo is like the Tardis, big on the outside and small on the inside. Tower above a Tokyo made for ants — you won’t be able to fit inside the building, but you will get a great bird’s eye view.

This amusement park is miniature wonderland, and we mean that quite literally. The eight different areas are themed dioramas filled with incredibly detailed miniatures. While there are no rides, there is still plenty to see, with hidden easter eggs waiting to be found.

There are eight different areas to explore in Small Worlds Tokyo, including a space center, the world of Sailor Moon, and Kansai International Airport — all with their own unique charm and realistic replicas. Each area has interactive elements, making you feel like part of the world. Kids will love pressing buttons to see the dioramas light up, move, and make sounds.
