Everything You Need to Know About Japan’s New Legoland

Japan already has Disneyland in Tokyo, Universal Studios in Osaka and now Nagoya is on the brink of opening a new Legoland! Opening April 1st 2017, it will be the world’s eighth Legoland theme park. Let’s take a look at what we can expect from Legoland Japan!

Legoland Japan is a 9.3 acre park, carefully put together with 17 million lego bricks! Filling out the park are seven exciting park zones: Factory, Lego City, Adventure, Miniland, Knight’s Kingdom, Pirate Shore and Bricktopia. The park will feature over 40 attractions and a 2 meter tall Nagoya Castle replica, made from over 200,000 lego bricks!

The journey all begins here, in Factory. Take the factory tour and find out how those lovable little bricks are made. Then go grab your very own brick, and bring it home as a souvenir. The Big Shop, also in Factory, offers the largest selection of Lego in all of Asia.

At Lego City, earn yourself an official Legoland driver’s license by learning how to drive an electric car. Driving School is available for 6 – 13 years old and Jr. Driving School for 3 – 5 years of age. That’s not all, learn how to fly at City Airport and do your city service by helping out at the police station, the firefighters and the coast guard!



The Adventure zone of Legoland is all about releasing your inner Indiana Jones while setting out to explore fascinating worlds, from submarine trips around the depths of the ocean to recovering treasure from lost ancient Egyptian Kingdoms.
