It’s not something you’d enjoy if you have zero Japanese and are traveling with young children. There’s an English audio guide, but that doesn’t change much. It’s not something you’d expect to see from a planetarium. I went to see the latest south pole show....More
We watched some weird thing about how the forest goes through cycles all under the stars and showed different star signs and constellations.
If you really want to go, make sure you select the right "movie". I thought it was going to be science, but...More
We saw queues for the Aquarium and decided to try the Planetarium instead. The show we saw was a "Relaxation" one but still fabulous.
Once seated with headphones you extend you chair right back to almost lying down to watch the show on the huge...More

The show was called Goodnight or something like...More
We chanced upon this when we were in Sunshine City on a rainy day. Bought tickets 20 minutes before the hourly show. The narration was in Japanese (headsets with English translation provided). I think even non-Japanese speakers would enjoy it because the visuals were intuitive,...More
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.
