  • I have challenged the real life game after booking in advance at a company gathering. I used my tablet to play roulette and enjoy life in the Meiji era while walking around the large park and challenging various events.

  • I think it's enough to take a look at the playhouse and take a walk. Unlike the Showa era, i don't think it's nostalgic to go back to the Meiji era( laughs) The village is so large that you should take a street car, SL, bus ride, go to the farthest distance, and walk around there aiming at the exit gate.

  • The park locate in a great location. The nature is very nice. Amazing setting. Most buildings are fully furnished. Restaurants served good food, no overpriced. I recommend you to choices first then go go go.
  • Great place for adults and children alike. Good variety of architecture. The steam locomotive, streetcar, and bus are all options for travel within the park, and if you think you will use it many times, you should consider getting the unlimited ride pass.
