Experience the excitement of the world’s starriest sky and various attractions

The world’s starriest sky twinkling with over 140 million stars

Tamarokuto Science Center

The interactive museum houses a planetarium certified as the most advanced by Guinness World Records. It projects a realistic night sky awash with 140 million stars, for a fun show complete with live commentary by dedicated staff members. The exhibition space is divided into four “labs,” where daily programs invite adults and children alike to touch, think, and try. A popular attraction is Moonwalker, simulating the gravity of the Moon.

Japan’s largest interactive monozukuri area in an amusement park

Yomiuriland

The amusement park features 43 attractions including a roller coaster reaching top speeds of 110 kilometers per hour. The highlight is a new area dubbed Goodjoba!! where a unique group of attractions replicating four factories are proving immensely popular. Visitors enjoy the ride and get an experience of the production line of, say, a real-life automaker or food products maker. The factories even organize workshops inviting families to try their hand at the Japanese style of monozukuri craftsmanship. Don’t miss the seasonal features like Pool WAI with five swimming pools and three sliders for summer, and Yomiuriland Jewellumination sparkling like gems in winter.


Goodjoba!! visitors can assemble their own car and take it for a test drive
