Kandu Indoor Theme Park, Chiba – Tips to Make the Most Out of Your Visit

Kandu Indoor theme parkKandu is an indoor theme park similar to Tokyo`s Kidzania where kids aged 3 – 16 years can work a variety of jobs and get paid for them. Some of the jobs include a JAL Airlines pilot, JAXA Space engineer, architect, takoyaki chef, soup maker, cold stone ice cream maker and more. Located less than an hour drive from central Tokyo it’s a nice alternative to Kidzania.
Kandu Indoor theme parkSome notable differences between Kandu and Kidzania are lower pricing and hours (4 hour shift versus 6 hours at Kidzania), and less activities to select from, 30 jobs versus 90 at Kidzania. Kandu seems more suitable for younger kids. They also have an electronic reservation system. Scan your Kandu card at each bilingual (Japanese/English) reservation machine, select the reservation time and press よやく(reserve). A reservation ticket will print out for you to hold in your Kandu carrier till your activity begins.  You can make another reservation 20 min after you’ve reserved an activity (Note: reservation periods depend on the day. It can range from 10 – 20 min).
