Tips for family with small kids

Can Baby/Toddler enjoy?


As it starts from dark area, some toddler might get scared in the beginning.

But after they feel water and lights, most of them would start to feel, “well,,isn’t this kind of fun…?!”

Be prepared to be wet

If could, everyone better wear short or half pants as water attraction is the main parts. (in summer)

For ladies, skirts is not so good because some area’s floor are made of mirror – underpants can be seen..

But it’s ok anyone can borrow towel and half pants at site. (ask staff for half pants)

For small kids, better bring extra clothes. (underwear and pants or skirts at least)

*FYI, our 4 years old kid were all wet.

Locker room and changing rooms are prepared.

If you didn’t bring clothes, and so wet, Let’s go & buy at La La Port Toyosu shopping mall.

How long does it take to finish?

Depends on family, but approx. 1.5~2hours.

Can you use stroller inside?


All visitors will leave all belongings at lockers.

Stroller should be parked at stroller area.

Please bring carrier for baby who can’t walk yet.

Is there nursing room?

There is one diaper changing stand at toilet.
There are individual changing room, you can ask staff to use as nursing room if needed.

Is there cafe/restaurants inside?

No Food / Drink allowed inside the exhibition, and there is only one simple food stand outside the exhibits. (no table/chairs)

Therefore eat well before you visit here.

After finishing this exhibition, let’s move for lunch or dinner.

Restaurants/Cafes in neighbor

I would say 3 different choices ;

LaLa port Toyosu Shopping Mall

If you walk about 10-15min toward Toyosu, there is shopping-mall called LaLa port Toyosu. you can find many nice restaurants for family.
