The playground OUTSIDE of Kid's Plaza is awesome for kids 3 to 6 years old. The slides are really fun! Cream on top cupcake. Cupcake being Kid's Plaza Osaka. We spent 1.5hrs outside with 34mth old kid. Kid's Plaza Osaka is good for kids 3 to 12 years old. There were bugs, bubbles, X-ray, fun physics, role play area, musical instruments and world introduction of language and culture. We spent about 3 hrs here.
The very best place to spend a day or afternoon with your kids of any age!! This is a jewel in Osaka. However I don't understand why they have different fare for foreigner. But I respect that.
So much fun for the kids! Extra bonus for all the seniors that are there helping out with everything imaginable. Absolutely love it
Nice children’s play activities. We had 6&8 year olds and they got tired of the central structures where you run around quickly but they enjoyed the science activities more. Probably not worth coming if older than 8-9.
Wonderful place to bring the kids. My son (3.5 years) loved the place. There are many activities to do with the intention of teaching scientific concepts. Although he is too young to understand, the various stations and activities entertained him for 5 hours. He especially loved the various musical instruments from around the world, let's face it which kid wouldn't? He got to bang, drum, strum, shake, ring various instruments. Loved it. When the place closed, he started crying and sobbing because he wanted to stay and play. This is not usual for him as he is usually fine to leave when we tell him. And he wasn't the only kid showing signs that they can't bear to leave. Shows how much the place attracts children. Worth a visit if you have about half the day, otherwise dealing with the kid(s) who are cranky about leaving might not be the best for the rest of the day/night.
