We have no Japanese language skills, but we wanted to check out Namjatown because we read it had 200 different kinds of dumplings and as a way to kill time before the Pokemon Mega Center opened. I can't recall what we paid or what it...More

We paid the basic 500 yen entry fee as we already knew that there would be a language barrier with the rides. There's plenty to wander around without going on the rides and, of course, the gyoza food court offers lots of tasty options. We...More

I came here when they were holding the sailor moon event. It was fun and cute! I especially loved the cat statues and characters in there. It was however a lot smaller than I had hoped. Or more rather, less activities. Mostly it was just...More

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.

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...More
