Godzilla In Legoland
Charizilla gives his big green cousin a helping hand at Tokyo Legoland.
The Grand Imperial Empire Of Lego obviously isn’t only in Japan, but an especially awesome part of it is! Welcome to Tokyo Legoland, where Godzilla is king, and Pokemons rule!
From now on, I’m only going to weigh myself in Legos.
Sprawling model Tokyo captures all the landmarks, and cycles through 24 hours every five minutes or so, so you can watch the city lights come on!
Tokyo is the only place in the world where you can summon the Big Green Guy with the push of a button!
The model of Tokyo changes with the seasons – this picture of Senso-ji temple was taken when the cherry blossoms were in bloom, outside in the wide world of Non-Lego Land.
Sumo minifigs YES.
Baseball pinball game made of Legos? Win.
Of course, there’s also a massive indoor playground with slides, ball pits and various age-group Lego construction paradises, and a café.
Be forewarned: Without one of these, you can’t come in. All adults must be accompanied by a kid, or they won’t sell you a ticket. (>_<)
If you’d like to go to Tokyo Legoland the next time you’re in Tokyo, directions & a map are on my website The Tokyo Guide I Wish I’d Had.
Tokyo Legoland is open 7 days a week.
Hours: Weekdays 10:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m., Weekends & holidays 10:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.
