This complex of a hands-on museum and a shopping mall featuring the popular cartoon characters, Anpanman (Bean Bun Man) and his friends, is located in Yokohama City, Kanagawa Prefecture. In its paid areas on the 2nd and 3rd floors, there is the museum area which includes the Hiroba-square with a stage where the Anpanman shows are held, the Pan Kojo (bread factory) where you can experience bread kneading, the Minna-no-Machi (our town) that reproduces the world of Anpanman, the Anpanman-go vehicle that you can play inside, along with the workshops, the ball pool and areas where babies and toddlers can play safely. In the free admission area on the 1st floor, there are Anpanman-themed shops, a food court, a bakery with character breads and a photo studio. Extremely kids-friendly.

Update: it's been a few years since my last visit, and the museum had moved to a new venue. In the process, unfortunately, they reduced the number of activities offered. Now, it's mainly the 3rd floor with 10 small areas and a show stage that offers 2 different 12.5 minute shows per day. Much smaller than previously! Nonetheless, they jacked up pricing to 2,200 JPY per person - which I clearly classify a rip-off now. This, i reduce my former 4 star rating to 2 stars.
Also, the place is probably most appropriate for toddler age kids.
Our toddler daughter was happy, and that's what counts. Admission of JPY 1'500 is per person, which makes it quite steep. Area itself is quite small.

Pretty awesome place to pay a visit with family! Cool playground for kids. If your kids love Annan man then you probably should pay a visit to here. However, the tickets are expensive and the play ground is a little bit small. The good point is that it is an one day pass, so you can entry into 2nd floor all day long. We like the restaurant at 1st floor, and you don’t need to have a ticket for that. The only difference is you can watch a 20 mins show of Anpan man family.
