This was a good way to experience lots of different gyoza for a good price. It was full of children and is like an adventure play. We loved the atmosphere and it was great to understand what their culture in the modern day is like. Very busy and good experience. Isn't a must see but I'm glad i did it.

We were brought here by some friends who lived in Tokyo. We paid the entrance fee which was a few hundred yen and headed straight for the ice cream shop. This place had the craziest flavours I have ever seen, from garlic to Indian curry to oyster. We tried 30 flavours between the 5 of us and the only ones... More

We used to love NamjaTown, but since one level was closed to make space for a different attraction there feels like there's less than half the fun. The fun Turkish icecream stall is gone, as well as many stalls for pudding and gyoza. The festival games are no more, and there generally are a lot less games to play. As... More

I used to visit quite often because they have a lot of collaboration with anime titles and I'd go and spend too much money on foods just for a spiffy postcard. It's pretty interesting if you've never visited before, but the food there really is overpriced. The games there requires at least basic understanding of Japanese and is, again, not... More

Located on the floor below j world in sunshine city ikebukuro it is a trek if you are not going to ikebukuro for any other reason. You have a choice of a ¥800 ticket just to get in but no rides/activities included or ¥2000+ ticket for access to most things. My advice is to plump for the cheaper ticket just... More

The food was mediocre / tasteless at best, the arcade was the same as any place but a more expensive and the design was kitch - not in an endearing way. The ice cream selection was the only upside, but coal ice cream isn't worth it.

Just don't go here. This attraction might have something going on for it if you know Japanese, but otherwise it's just overpriced, bad food, horrible atmosphere - but not as cheap or cool as any basic arcade. The Ice cream selection was good and interesting, though. Still, is not worth it.

500 yen for adult and 300 yen for child below 12. Go Disneyland better although expensive. Nothing exciting inside. It was not crowded. Just electronic rides for children.

This is no place for grown up people. Most of the attractions are for children and if you are older than 10 it is not really worthwhile buying an "all attractions pass". however, the "ice cream town", or however it is called, is really amazing and you can taste ice cream with the weirdest flavours you can imagine, beside of...

We went here for the Gyoza shops which provide Gyoza specialities from around China/Japan. Food was excellent and it was a fun walk through the rest of the Namjatown as well. Everything is decorated like old Japanese towns.

Staying in Ikebukuro

Neighborhood Profile
Ikebukuro
Ikebukuro is an area of massive development. Several thousand tenants occupy two giant department stores and shopping malls, where all sorts of shopping and gourmet foods can be enjoyed. The 60-story building at the east entrance of the station, Sunshine City, is a landmark within Ikebukuro and features an aquarium, planetarium, theme park as well as an observation platform. The popular name for the western side of this area is "Otome Road" (Maiden Road) and there are many shops selling products related to anime with a female theme. It has rapidly become the worldwide headquarters for ‘otaku’ or geek culture.
