Yomiuriland Amusement Park (Inagi, Tokyo) – Water & Ride Park

Yomiuriland is one of our favorite water & ride parks on our list of TOP Theme Parks in Japan. Yomiuriland Amusement Park is an all inclusive amusement ride and in the summer months water park. A 30 train ride from Shinjuku, your family can enjoy a hot day at one of the six pools, over 30 amusement rides and a wide selection of snack shacks and restaurants. The WAI Pool Park is open from late June – October and costs between 2,000 – 3,200 JPY for an all inclusive one day pass to the pools. An all inclusive WAI Pool Park and Amusement Park ticket runs 5,000 – 6,000 JPY for the day.

Note little ones under 110 cms can not ride the large rides or the waterslides, but my under 105 cm daughter had plenty of choices to entertain her and loved the day. There are many groups of junior and high school kids by themselves since it is a very safe environment for a day away from parents. We went on a Japanese school day, and the park was empty with no Yomiuriland, Tokyo Amusement Park, BestLivingJapanlines at all. However, I heard on weekends and holidays it gets rather busy. Enjoy a family fun day at Yomiuriland by checking out their English website with more details.
