Hawaii Mom Blog: Visit Tokyo: Niko Niko Park

Visit Tokyo: Niko Niko Park

We love taking kids to playgrounds whenever we travel, and while in Japan, we took them to Meiji Jingu Gaien's Niko Niko Park.  The park is also known as 100 yen park, since there's actually an entrance fee of 100 yen per child (300 yen per adult).

I was hesitant to go to a "pay-to-play" park, but it turned out to be a very nice park, with equipment that was well-maintained.

There were lots of places to climb, crawl, and slide.

My kids especially loved the super long green slide.

There are even a few employees roaming the grounds to supervise the area, but there were moments where I saw some kids not being supervised at all - even by their own parents!

Kids 2- to 3-years old were flying down a very long slide at the other end of the park.  They'd land on their bottoms crying, with their parents no where in sight.  Other parents looked around helplessly trying to assist the little ones.

Because many parents were not supervising their kids, the kids would often go up the slide the wrong way or cut in front of others (my middle son even asked "how do you say 'don't cut in Japanese?'").

For the most part, though, the kids had a great time.  

There is also a big open space for kids to simply run around.  Many of the kids were bouncing around on little bouncy animals.

At the playground is also a zipline, a trampoline, swings, rope climb, rock climbing walls, and more!

There are also vending machines, a food tent, lots of picnic tables and benches, and even a beer garden that opens up in the evening in the same park (after the playground closes).

The kids loved it at Niko Niko Park - I'd definitely pay to have the kids play there again!
