Tobu World Square

This theme park in Nikko City, Tochigi Prefecture, displays models of famous buildings in the world. The buildings are built on a 1/25 scale.

I was really fascinated that they not only modeled the buildings, but people in the neighborhood too! It’s really impressive how the Japanese artists have managed to capture realistic human facial expressions. What great skills they have!

Some of the building models feature really interesting characters. Some people are actually more interested in spotting these characters rather than admiring the buildings models.

As the park is continuously adding more building models, you’ll always find something new each time you visit.

Do try to visit it at night too. With the building models lit up, the surroundings look very different from during the day. In real life, most of these buildings won’t be lit up. Isn’t it wonderful that you can enjoy a different perspective here at Tobu World Square?

My kids really enjoyed the trip here. They felt like they traveled around the world in just one day. Do bring your family here too! You’ll have such a delightful time.

The entrance fee is about 2,800 yen for adults and 1,400 yen for children.

東武ワールドスクウェアは栃木県日光市にあるテーマパークです。
1/25サイズで、世界に有名な建築物を模型で表現しているユニークなテーマパークです。

建築物の模型だけではなく、周辺にいる人も模型にしているのですが…
人の表情まできめ細かく作り込んだ技術には、日本人ならではの“こだわり”を感じられます。
ところどころに、面白いキャラクターがいるので、世界遺産の建物よりキャラ探しに夢中になってしまう方もいるようです。

東武ワールドスクウェアに完成はなく、次々と有名な建築物が園内に建てられており、訪れる人を飽きさせません。
夜になると、建築物がライトアップますので日中とはまた違ったおもしろさがあります。

本物の建築物にはスポットライトがないものも多く、
「もし有名建築物にスポットライトを当てたらどうなるか…?」という視点で楽しく見て回ることができますよ。

ここに来ると、1日で世界一周した気分になれます。
子供が喜ぶと思うので、ぜひ家族で訪れてみてはいかがでしょうか?
