Ōgimachi Station (扇町駅, Ōgimachi-eki, K12) is a metro station on the Osaka Municipal Subway Sakaisuji Line in Kita-ku, Osaka, Osaka Prefecture, Japan.
Excellent place for the kids to play!! If I had lived nearby I would have been a daily visitor!! There’s so many things that the kids can explore and learn!! It’s a great place very much recommended for all kids!! Don’t miss to plan to spend a full day in your itineraries that your kids will feel happy & holidaying... & learn in the process!!!
Suitable for kids up till 12 years old and there are a lot for a child to spend a whole day. Parents can join with the children as well for most of the activities. Advisable to bring your own food cos I don't see a cafe inside.
The plaza caters to children from 2 years to about 7. It consists of a large adventure playground with lots of tunnels, bridges and climbing apparatus. On the upper floor are more interactive tasks, from drum's and dressing up games to science related projects. My children spent several hours and were constantly entertained. Food options are limited within the plaza, nearby there are cafés and within a 10 min walk one of the best sushi restaurants in Osaka. Would I return to the plaza, probably not. Would I recommend first timers, most definitely.
Great fun! Make sure to bring plenty of hand disinfectant and wipes! It's a fantastic place to bring the kiddos, but seriously it's a germ factory. We will be back for sure.
Great place for kids around 2 to maybe 10. Lots of learning activities. Real life experiences. Hours of fun! Bring own lunch or choose from plenty of places outside the plaza (ticket allows for re-entry). Does have drink machines. Speak English, no problem. ^_^
Definitely plan to spend more than an hour here. Probably two-and-a-half just to really spend time on everything. It doesn’t matter if you have a wiggly kid or a science kid or a quiet kid, they all will find a space here. Our 6- and 10-year-old has a really great time. Kids are encouraged to touch and try and question. A lot of fun!
Lots of fun for the kids. Very traditional cultural stuff. Very good for foreigners like us. We learn a lot of Japanese culture here. The play area was very well set up. My kids didn't want to leave. Very easy to get to.
We came here with our two kids 6 and 2 and both had a great time. Not everything is explained in English but it doesn't really need to be as you can figure most things out without the instructions. Some of the staff spoke English but the majority did not. Ended up spending most of the day here so definitely recommended if you have kids!
Best for pre-school and older. My nearly -3 was just a bit too young for many of the exhibits and activities though she did enjoy running around with all of the kids. Not a waste for her at all just most fully utilized with older kids.
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.
Very interactive for kids to have fun and learn. There's a science floor which teaches kids about physics, math, biology, nature etc, but in a fun, hands on way. There is an area for kids to be immersed in daily work life. Dress up as a post man and deliver mail; work in a supermarket or just have fun on the big slide or traverse the cargo bridge. Warning, 10-2 is busy with school kids, really really busy.
Plenty to do for kids with most having an educational element so more like a really fun museum. We brought a two year and four year old. The four year old had the most fun. There is also a good park just outside Kids Plaza
Great place for kids to run around. The physical activities are really great, not much English required. The Digital experience needs updating its a little dated. Good for 3 hours of fun for the kids
Part science museum with some craft stations. The castle in the center can keep kids running around nonstop. Includes interesting interactive installations for the kids and kids-at-heart. Adult might even learn a thing or two. Not much of a problem to navigate even if you don’t know Japanese. Nice park and shopping street nearby. Kids can spend a whole day here, and parents can sit on nearby benches or at tables around the castle but might not have direct sight of the kids.
Awesome place for kids! My kid enjoy everything in it. One of the amazing thing here are the role playing for kids where they can experience and introduced to daily life stuff like do groceries (fake food), make sushi in his/her own stall (fake sushi), be a post man, be a plumber etc. Also it is a free roam place. But be sure to come here not with an empty stomach. There is also a SOAP BOX race upstairs haha. FUN
