Next stop... spending some time at Sega Joypolis and the Tokyo Decks area! If you are spending some time in Tokyo and you're looking for a place that is uniquely "Japanese" filled with all those wacky arcades, attractions, and shopping areas you see in so many TV shows about Japan, you need to stop at the Toyko Decks area (right outside of the Tokyo Teleport JR Train Station) and you can easily fill a good portion of a day here! Everytime we go we see things we had never seen before and we like this area even more!
Here are some photos...
This morning we are heading to Tokyo Joypolis at the Tokyo Decks! Here's the crazy looking Fuji TV building just outside!
Spending our day Joypolis! Love this indoor park!
The world's only launching looping spinning shooting/interactive indoor themed coaster with on-board audio! It's awesome!
This Half Pipe ride where you have to work together spin and score points is so much fun!
Because everything at Tokyo Joypolis is a video game... even when you pee!
If simulators and VR attractions are your thing, Joypolis has plenty of good ones!
Of course you will find a lot of Sonic themed games and attractions here!
Let's just make one thing perfectly clear... Japanese toilets are smarter than you'll ever be. Did we mention that being winter they all have seat warmers in them?
They make fresh crepes at Joypolis as well as all over Japan and they make us so happy!
There are also plenty of video games and claw machines!
