Kids Plaza Osaka

Aiden and I (with a good friend of mine and her daughter), visited Kids Plaza a week or so ago. It was my first visit, so I will share my new knowledge with you... 

Where? Closest train station is Ogimachi (on the Sakaisuji line) take exit #2, but is also accessible from Tenjinbashi-suji-6-chome station, and Tenma station. 

If you drive there, parking is available under the building (it costs 150yen per 30mins).

How much? 1,200yen for adults, 600yen for elementary school aged children (and older), 300yen for 3 year olds (and older), and free for kids under 3. Seniors (65+ years old) are 600yen.

Annual passports are available if you plan to go a lot (more information here).

There are lots of facilities for mums, kids and babies including nursing rooms, lots of toilets, changing tables, stroller-hire and tables where you can eat lunch (byo).

The plaza is great for elementary school aged kids, but if you have crawlers or toddlers, there is play space available for them too. You have to remove your shoes to enter this area (and it is limited to 0-6 year olds and parents).

The English website has a lot of information so you should be able to get everything you need there. The only trouble we had was that 1200 school kids were there at the same time. Most of them left by 1:30 or 2:00pm, so if you are worried about this (school trips on weekdays), then perhaps go after lunch!
