ASOBono Play Center Kōrakuen, Tokyo) – Babies to Elementary


If it is too cold or rainy to go outside try  the ASOBono Play Center at Tokyo Dome.  Baby and I went the other day and had a great time! ASOBono is one of the largest indoor playgrounds for kids in Tokyo with play areas for six months through elementary. I think the ideal age is 2-6 years. ASOBono changes a flat rate for parents, and a 60 min rate for children with an additional fee each 30 mins. My personal experience is that you will not get out in 60 mins; two hours is about right. There is a massive climbing and sliding area that has balls for the kids to slide and and DSC_1639drop. There is so much to do in the Tokyo Dome complex that we love – Roller Skating, TenQ Space Museum, LaQua Spa, Baseball and the Amusement Park. Spend the entire day!

Baby’s favourite areas were the supermarket, the restaurant and kitchen, and baby dolls.  She was very upset when we had to leave her family of 10 dolls who she had fed, bathed and put to sleep. If you have a 6-24-month-old, you will enjoy the baby exclusive area with mini ball pit. There is also a library, building structure area, an enormous area with cars, trucks, tracks and battery operated trains, and various corners we did not even have time to enter. ASOBono has a strategically placed gift shop with many toys so don’t expect to go home empty handed. Good place for 1-2 hours. If you go on a cold or rainy weekend expect to wait about 15-30 mins.
