Really a small world! They do sell some sort of prepaid cards that can trigger the device, it’s 15 times for... maybe 500 yen. I recommend kids buying it( I’m a kid as well :P)
It shows you how Panama Canal functions! It’s better than read the textbook seriously.
And there is also building from my hometown, Kaohsiung Taiwan!

Was much better than I expected, the surrounding gardens themselves are worth going to see! It’s not only the replica buildings themselves which are incredibly detailed but the people are also really fun to look at. If you look closely enough the people surrounding each building tell a story, whether it’s the window washer, the political protestors or the maintenance man. Kids will love it here

An open-air museum of miniature models depicting famous buildings around he world. The price (¥2,800) is a bit steep, but well worth it given how much fun you get to have.
I especially loved the huge area model towards the end of the exhibit: houses, bridges, train stations and a bunch of trains moving around. It's a perfect, magical world that I could watch for hours and hours. But even models that are not moving and making sound are fascinating. If you've got time, I challenge you to find a funny, weird or cool episode taking place in every model. Here's one to get you started: walk around NYC, find Bank of America, look close. Yup, that's a heist!
And if you come here around the time it starts getting dark, you will be rewarded with a simple, yet beautiful light show.

The concept itself is amazing, miniature versions of major attractions around the world. We take most of our guests to this place.
