Legoland Discovery Center
This Legoland isn’t as big as the ones in California or Denmark, but it’s still just as fun for Lego fans. There are two rides: one at Kingdom Quest where you rescue a princess by zapping trolls and skeletons from a chariot and one at Merlin’s Apprentice Ride where you join a fantasy world and try to become the wizard’s apprentice by conjuring magic. In addition, you can tour the Lego factory, look at a diorama of Tokyo, and watch a film at the 4D cinema.
Fans of Hello Kitty and friends have to visit this theme park where you can see a kabuki-style Hello Kitty musical, explore Hello Kitty’s mansion, and take photos with her. Gudetama fans can enter into the character’s world with bowling and dancing games. Sanrio Puroland even has four restaurants with themed items.
