I’ve always been curious about this place. I’ve passed by numerous times on our way to Toys R Us. Toshimaen is popular specially during hanami season since they have lots of cherry trees. During the Christmas season, lots of young lovers go there for a date because they display tons of tealights. They call it Christmas Illumination; and just a note, Christmas isn’t religion-based here– it’s celebrated like they celebrate Halloween or Valentine’s.
We finally set a day to go!
You can choose different types of tickets. They have option for Ride all you want ticket, Ride all the kiddie rides ticket, and park entrance ticket. All tickets have adults and children (3 years old and above) rates. Kids under 3 enter and ride free. Since we weren’t sure if Little A would ride anything, we opted for the park entrance tickets. Note that some attractions aren’t part of the buffet rides.
Our first stop was this balloon cage. Little A likes balloons so….pure bliss for 30 minutes or so inside! Best part of the day for her, I think.
Merry Go Round. My fave anywhere! The horses (and pigs) doesn’t rise and fall though. The colors of the animals are a little faded but makes for a more authentic old world feel. Can you spot Little A?
The Flying Carpet. Many highschool kids were lining up here.
Reminds me of Enchanted Kingdom! People were screaming! How fun!
The attractions aren’t new but not scary “perya” levels either.
Water play. Safari jeeps go around and you try to hit the animal photos.
Like Merry Go Round but with cars!
The are a lot of these mini and private rides for smaller kids.
There are a lot of places to eat and drink. The whole park is littered with vending machines, too. Seating areas are plenty enough.
Animal shows and petting zoo. Parrots, llama, tortoise, horse, and guinea pigs for petting.
There is even a mystery slash haunted house show!
Your kids will not be happy if you bring them here instead of Disneyland, but, if you have an extra few days and nowhere to bring the kids, Toshimaen is a good place to spend the day. They have different attractions for all ages. Enjoy!
