Tobu World Square Theme Park

Tochigi's "little people"

By Louise Archer    - 1 min read

Tobu World Square is a miniature theme park in Kinugawa Onsen, Nikkō, Tochigi, Japan. Built at 1:25 scale with outstanding detail, every aspect is beautifully reproduced in miniature. There are more than 100 tiny replicas of famous buildings from around the world including UNESCO World Cultural and Heritage Sites. More than 20,000 Bonsai trees and over 140,000 little people are engaged in all sorts of activities. They have an English website and you can get there by car, or take the train to Kinugawa Station. The access map on the webpage is excellent.

I am an Aussie expat (ex Sydney, Perth, ex UK) living in rural Japan. Im very passionate about people seeing more of Japan than the big cities, which are wonderful places, but there are so many hidden treasures in the countryside and lesser known regions. For the three years I have been living here I've been keeping a blog called "Just life (in Japan)"  about my life in Japan, the places I visit and Tochigi Prefecture where I live.
