I went for first time in Namjatown and it is the place with small attraction of Anime characters Namja but for my opinion it is more focus for kids, families. Also there are Youkai watch to enjoy for them. For adult people I can recommend J-world Tokyo, that is on the upper floor of the same building :)

A shame of "amusement park", you gotta pay to get in and then you gotta pay for every single attraction, the free ones are extremely poor, the food is awful (the worst ginza I've ever tasted). Shame on Lonely Planet for having this place as a recommended one. It's expensive, difficult to arrive by public transport, the food is horrible... More

I went here on my own. Seemed very touristy. It'd be great for a family with kids who want to play all the video games and have a meal, but I didn't get much out of it myself.

Despite of their English map, English guide, English ticket machine...inside the park, everything is in Japanese. Not gaijin friendly, sadly. I went there hoping to let out my inner child and after we pay the entrance, we weren't able to play because we couldn't understand a thing.

I came solely to sunshine 60 for this! I enjoyed it very much but had expected something bigger. It's a little small but the little kid in me was brought out from the exciting little areas.

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

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.
