If you’ve ever wished you could shrink yourself and live in one of the amazing model worlds Japan is so famous for…now you can!
Small Worlds—a vast, animatronic, model-trains-on-steriods theme park that not only reimagines Tokyo, but the Sailor Moon and Evangelion versions of it—offers a one-year “residence permit” that allows a tiny 3D-scanned model of YOU (dressed and posed any way you like) to be placed in the world of your choosing!
The park is all indoors, but it’s both huge and detailed, so you can spend many happy hours exploring all its nooks and easter eggs. It’s divided into three different themes: Global Village, Sailor Moon and Evangelion.
All photos but the first one were taken by my friend who runs the excellent Where In Tokyo website, and you can see lots more great snaps here!
Open: Every day
Hours: 9:30 – 20:00

If you want a tiny version of yourself to live in Small Worlds for a year, the “Residency Program” costs ¥19,800 per adult, and includes a personal 3D scanned model figure in the costume (BYO) and pose of your choice and a one-day group pass to return to view the figure placed in your chosen model
