KidZania is a city founded by the children of the world where they can be leaders and learn about society while having fun. Kids get to role-play as Adults at more than 90 jobs and activities using real-world tools and equipment. Complete with shops, vehicles and a functional society, KidZania is a 2/3 scale city just for Kids. Choose an activity at the TV Station, Airplane, Bank or any of the over 60 pavilions. Put on a uniform and get to work! ★What to do? First, choose a pavilion where you want to work. After you finish your job, you get paid in the local currency, "kidZos". Use your kidZos to shop and pay for services. At most activities, you will be creating something new. Whether it is food from the Pizza Shop or Bakery, or a DVD from the Fashion Show, what you create is yours to keep! ★Let's Start! Just like any country you will travel to, the more you plan before you enter, the better. Upon entering KidZania, choose a pavilion and get started! ★Getting Tickets KidZania Tokyo operates two shifts daily. ・1st shift:9:00am - 3:00pm ・2st shift:4:00pm - 9:00pm Congestion is expected.
