Legoland Discovery Centre, Osaka

Yesterday we took the kids off on a mission to the Legoland Discovery Centre in Osaka. It was a good day out for them, and although busy, it was a much nicer place to visit (as far as I was concerned, anyway!) than either of the Disney or the Universal Studio parks.

They had a couple of kid-friendly rides, lots of themed play areas (where you could, of course, build your own Lego creations) a dining area, and a model city.

As you'd expect, the city was particularly impressive. Here are a few shots from the day.

Idyllic scenes - until you see a kaiju  arising behind the building!

A model of the Osaka Aquarium.

More Osaka landmarks.

The modelling was spectacular, and there were various interactive activities, too.

For this Sumo bout, two players would push buttons as fast as they could until their man won (or lost). 

Osaka Castle.

More scenes.
The entry fee was fairly reasonably priced and the attractions were great for our kids at the ages they are now. Twelve year olds might find it a little boring, but for younger ones, it hit the spot.

There was also a shop with plenty of Lego sets to buy, but these were not cheap (the Death Star for US$700, anyone?!) and the style does not appeal to me as much as those glorious castle sets from my own youth ( but which we were never rich enough to own, sadly!).

So, a good day out, but if I'm honest, I was not that much of a Lego kid: my heart belonged to those Playmobil cowboys and Indians.


  1. My granddaughter would LOVE that place!

  2. Looks brilliant, I continue to be both surprised and pleased to see one of my generations childhood favourite toys still being so massively enjoyed by so many millions.

  3. Those displays look awesome! My grand kids and I have visited a lego store and had a blast, if they so this they would have freaked!!!

    Bring on the kragle!!!

  4. Thanks all - yes, impressive displays and very popular with the kids (and their parents!).

  5. Awesome. I still love Lego - have been doing some building last couple of days with my boys. The Lego bucket tends to come out fairly often :D
