We skipped the crowds at Tokyo Disneyland and Universal Studios in favor of this local amusement park. We visited on a weekday in November - so - no lines! We were able to ride some fun (not too scary) roller coasters, went to a couple...More
My husband was not keen on going to this park because it takes about an hour to travel there, besides he felt that we have just gone to Tokyo Disneyland.
