We recommend families to spend 3- 5 hours enjoying rides (including a Ferris Wheel, Merry Go Round, Tea Cups, Overhead Cycle and mini train), the animal plaza petting zoo, the water park and a fishing moat.  To get to the park ride the Arakawa Toden streetcar which is one of last remaining streetcars in Japan. If you want to check out other retro Japan amusement parks we recommend Hanayashiki Amusement Park in Asakusa.

The Petting Zoo has a few sheep, goats, rabbits and guinea pigs. Little ones can also view a cow, a capybara (which my daughter Arakawa Amusement Park 荒川遊園thought was a HUGE chipmunk :-), some Japanese monkeys, and a few other animals. You can buy small cups of chopped fruits and veggies to feed the animals. The staff (volunteers) are on hand in the zoo area to help any questions about animals.
