Tobu World Square

209-1 Kinugawaonsen Ōhara, Nikkō-shi, Tochigi-ken, Kanto, 321-2593

The Basics

A morning or afternoon at Tobu World Square is a fun side trip and a chance to admire some architectural treasures on a smaller scale. Although “miniature,” most of the models are still quite large, taller than the average person. The theme park is divided up geographically by continent. Take a look around on your own, or join a guided tour.
