Awesome way to see the most famous structures of the world all in one morning! All built on a scale 1:20 I believe, they were very well done with scaled down people and vehicles surrounding them. A guided tour is available with trivia facts about each structure ie... Barack Obama will be replaced with Trump soon in front of the... More

This place has miniatures of all the world famous attractions from Pyramids to Taj Majal to Statue of liberty. My kids absolutely loved it, especially the mini airport and mini train station they built inside with actual planes and trains movement. Wheel chairs are available at the reception, if you need one.

We walked around it in less than 2 hours. Its really good and fun for taking a few silly pictures but not much else. many of the miniature places... More

A great little treasure of a theme park with a craft that is uniquely Japanese. The level of detail of the buildings and landscapes are simply unmatched. It's almost like a living museum of the world. It's a little far from Tokyo to dedicate a trip to, but works great in combination with an onsen stay over or paired with... More

Very cute and charming park with different world zones with its major tourist spots. The miniatures are very well-done, all the little people are different and trains/planes around are moving. Surrounding music is also divided by certain country's theme. By inserting the card you can make some miniature move. However the park miniatures are slightly outdated and it would be... More

There was a ¥2500 admission fee and car par fee of ¥500, but for me it was okay as I enjoyed looking at all the monuments. I spent about 3 hours slowly walking through the theme park and was amazed at the detail of each monument. It was kind of cute to see animals grazing or people in the rice... More

In this theme park we saw miniatures of numerous well-known modern also ancient buildings, monuments, etc. from around the world divided by zones: Japan, Asia, Europe, Egypt and America. It's amazing to see how they were meticulously done to resemble the originals. If you are interested in this kind of good quality man-made things, you need 1-2 hours here. Ticket... More

Tobu World Square provides visitors with a unique experience featuring a total of 102 structures from 21 countries, including 45 inscribed as World Heritage by UNESCO. It is such a beautiful experience to see all the wonders at a single place. Besides the number of monuments,... More

The entrance fee was 2500 yen per person. The reproductions were very impressive. I examined every detail from the passengers inside the small train to the artificial fishes to the landscape. It was truly meticulously done. I suggest you take time to notice all the small details.
