Indoor playground ASOBono makes living in Tokyo with young children all the more much fun. At the site of the old and much-loved Toys Kingdom, ASOBono is one of Tokyo's largest children's indoor play facilities aimed at kids age 6 and under. Divided into five areas, each designed to appeal to the imagination and wonder of children, ASOBono will keep your child entertained for hours.
Physical Play Area For active kids this area has an enormous ball pit, trampolines, slides, climbing walls, and other features to promote gross motor skills and burn enough energy to guarantee a good nights sleep.
Make Believe Play Area Designed like a European-style town, children can play house, dine out, or even work in this full-scale imaginery land.
Trains & Blocks Play Area Thankfully the planners kept one of Toys Kingdom's most popular attraction - a 100m2 train yard generously stocked with Tomy rail tracks and battery-powered trains. Expect to see a lot of dads here! Budding engineers will enjoy the adjacent blocks play area.
Game Play Area Parents and children will be able to play various games in this area. There's also a doll house corner with cute animals to delight the kids, a magnetic wall, and other fun attractions.
Baby Area Babies aged 0-24 months have not been forgotten with a safe play area exclusively for them, featuring toys especially suited to little hands and feet.
As a parent you will be pleased to know ASABono is air-conditioned, making it a perfect destination on days when it is too hot to be outdoors. You can also expect clean and well-thought out baby-changing and nursing facilities.
ASABono is open daily from 10am to 6pm (Weekdays) and 9:30am to 7pm (Weekends and Holidays).
Adults: Entry for adults (junior high school age or older) is 900 yen for a 1 day free pass.
Children: Ticket price for children (6 months to elementary school students) is 900 yen for the first 60 minutes and 400 yen for each additional 30 minutes. If you want to stay for 2 hours or more, then it is recommended you go on a weekday (except public holidays) when you can purchase a children's 1 day free pass for 1,500 yen.
ASOBono is at Tokyo Dome and you can get there via a number of trains. See how to get to Tokyo Dome for access details.
For lunch you can't go wrong with the new "GO-FUN" Food Court next door. With a design inspired by a market set in a European park, there are six restaurants and plenty of open plan seating.
With so much to do you could easily spend the entire day there, but even so, there are a plethora of other things to see and do in the area including shopping, indoor bowling, and amusement rides. Check out the Tokyo Dome website for more information.
