In this rather unusual amusement park, children ages 3-15 can "work" at more than eighty grown-up jobs - pilot, firefighter, chef - and earn Kidzania currency while they do so. Some of the activities are geared toward older or younger kids, and while most activities don't require Japanese-language ability, a few of them do. Also, every Wednesday is "English Wednesday," when many of the activities are conducted in English - check the website for details.

Reservations can be made online; weekday afternoon sessions are the least crowded.
