Day Nineteen - Legoland Japan!

Today we visited a "new park" for us! It's sort of rare with all of our travels we get to visit a new park, so this was kind of exciting for us! We've always been a fan of the Legoland parks and this one in Japan, although smaller than most of the other parks, still had quite a bit to offer! Many of the Legoland attractions you are familiar with like The Dragon, the "water whip", the Adventure-themed shooting dark ride, etc are all here. And of course their Miniland was amazing!

Here's some photos & video...

Image
Look at where we are heading this morning!

Image
TPR says “Good morning from Legoland Japan!”

Image
Warning! Lots of LEGO photos are about to be posted!

Image
(You’ve been warned!)

Image
There are a lot of super awesome looking things to see in the Miniland area but we’ll come back to this area later... Rides first!

Image
The Dragon is the same roller coaster you know and love from other Legoland parks. Still a GREAT ride and one of the main feature attractions of the park. (they also have a kiddie version of this coaster, too!)

Image
What is more important than the Dragon roller coaster...

Image
...are all the cool LEGO characters they have outside of it!

Image
So... If Legoland Japan can have dueling Dragon coasters, why can't...

Image
Chuck must stop LEGO Godzilla and LEGO King Kong from destroying Japan!!!

Image
I love the “Submarine Adventure” attraction at LEGOLAND Japan!

Image
and I love that the name of your ride vehicle is “S.Q.U.I.D.” I don’t know why but squid is such a fun word to say!

Image
Image
Everyone get in the S.Q.U.I.D! :lol:

Image
Here we are in the S.Q.U.I.D! :lol:

Image
Image
You’ll see real sharks & fish on the Submarine Adventure...

Image
Image
...and maybe a few Lego characters thrown in as well!

Image
We have this amazing photo to remember our Submarine Adventure! :lol:



Image
Image
There really is just too much to show from Miniland!

Image
Image
So much amazing stuff to see here!



Image
It always makes me happy to see the “Rescue Academy” attraction at Legoland parks!

Image
One of my favorites and I’m glad they have it at Legoland Japan!

Image
More awesome Japan stuff in Miniland!

Image
Image
Image
While not the largest Miniland we've seen, Legoland Japan's might be the most elaborate!

Choose thy fate:
Image
Image
Post below what you want to be when you grow up!

Image
S.Q.U.I.D!!! :lol: :lmao:

Image
This is probably my all-time favorite Legoland attraction and happy to see that not only does LEGOLAND Japan have one...

Image
...but it’s also S.Q.U.I.D. themed!!! :p

Image
It just wouldn’t be a Merlin Entertainment park without a Pizza/Pasta Buffet!!!

Image
And this is the BEST one we’ve done so far!!!

Image
Image
Pizza/Pasta Buffet!!!

Image
A trip on the Observation Tower will give you a nice birds eye view of the park!

Image
Image
Image
Here's the overview of the park. You can see that while the park is not that large in size, it does have a lot to do!

Image
This LEGO factory tour is one of the best we’ve ever done!

Image
Image
You can see them making the actual LEGOLAND Japan bricks they give to you at the end of the tour!

Image
(And yes they are free!)

Image
I could just keep posting more pics from all the different areas of the park!

Image
No matter what direction you look there is always something cool to see!

Image
The large interstate in the background of the LEGOLAND City area actually works with this park! It fits the theming! :lol:

Image
This may have been my favorite display in Miniland!

Image
Yes those are all Lego mini characters in the stadium seats! Thousands of them!!!

Image
Image
Why, yes of course LEGOLAND Japan sells LEGO shaped food... :lol:

Image
Some close-ups of many different scenes in Miniland!

Image
Image
Image
So many details!

Image
Image
More awesome LEGO fun!

Image
I could easily post 100 photos of just more random things you see while wandering around the park!

Image
Pride zebra?

Image
In almost every Miniland at the different Legoland parks you can find a character sitting on the toilet!

Image
S.Q.U.I.D!!! :lol: :lmao:

Image
We had a fantastic visit to Legoland Japan! All the Legoland parks do such a great job of truly making you feel like a kid again!

Image
Image
The “giant white mannequin” in Nagoya Japan was dressed as Chewbacca this visit as a promotion for Solo.

Image
It’s pretty creepy looking... gotta admit!

Image
FYI - This is what it looked like in 2004..

Image
Image
Yes, these are capsule toys of “animals peeing into urinals!”

Image
Oh, Japan... We LOVE you!!! :lover: :lover: :lover:

Now, POST YOUR COMMENTS!!!! After all, we took the time to write this report, the least you can do is post something nice about it! :P

Maybe it's just me but it seems like every other Legoland park in the world looks better than Legoland Florida.

Awesome report! Really been loving the amount of content in these reports and the great pictures! Growing up with Lego's, I have always loved LEGO land, not for their rides, but for the amount of just COOL stuff they contain. Happy you guys found time to visit one in Japan!

Also, love these new submarine rides that resemble the old 20,000 leagues ride at Disney that are popping up in Legolands. :b
