Namco Asobi Park

Meru chan and pedal cars at Namco Asobi Park | AGEO

Namco Asobi Park – Namco may still be best known as a game developer, but in recent years they actually operate as game centre and amusement park providers.  Over the last few years Namco play and amusement centres have been popping up all over Japan. Thankfully, one of their most recent additions is in Saitama. Namco Asobi Park Ageo On […]

Small branch of Kid’s US Land near station | KAWAGOE

Kid’s US Land Kawagoe Kid’s US Land Kawagoe is the most recent of the super play centre chain to open on the West side of Saitama. It opened in March this year. After visiting both the Higashimatsuyama and Kamifukuoka branches, I was keen to visit the Kawagoe one too, to see how it compares. It has nothing on the other […]

Huge branch of Kid’s US Land beside station | FUJIMINO

After visiting Kid’s US Land in Higashimatsuyama, I was keen to try out the other branches to see how they compare. On the Internet it looked like the branch in Kamifukuoka (Fujimino) was particularly large, and a trip there this morning confirmed that is it indeed larger than the Higashimatsuyama or Kawagoe branches. It is about 1.5 times larger than Higashimatsuyama […]

Fun for kids of all ages at Kid’s US Land | HIGASHIMATSUYAMA

Play Center Higashimatsuyama – We are largely an outdoor family, but there are times of the year that we relish indoor play. By and large, summer is spent indoors, first to avoid the rain, then to escape the heat.  As my eldest son (7) and daughter (6) get older it gets harder and harder to find a play center that engages them […]

Preschooler play area Kids Park in Elumi | KOUNOSU

Play Center Konosu – Another day, another play area! We are on a seek and find quest for even more new (to us) play areas in Saitama. Call it a hobby, or an obsession, it keeps munchkin #4 highly entertained and keeps me on my toes. My overall impression of Kid’s Park is that it is mediocre, however, DD3 LOVED […]

Preschooler fun at Bornelund Kid-o-Kid in Cocoon 2 | OMIYA

Concealed in the back corner of the third floor of Cocoon 2 is a veritable preschooler’s paradise.  Bornelund’s Kid-o-kid recently celebrated its one year anniversary. It still looks like it was only opened in the last few weeks.  The equipment is very well kept, pristine, bright, colourful and educational to boot. It isn’t particularly large, but it is very well laid out. There […]

Niko Niko Garden Renewal Open in Festa | AGEO

Niko niko garden in Festa Ageo in the Value Plaza Value Plaza Ageo is an old style department store and walking into it you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d gone through a time slip to the 1980s. It is a cold and stark building, both indoors and out. And first impressions would likely put you off. The same can be said […]
