Where do Kids go to play when it rains in Japan?


Where can children go to play on a rainy day? In Japan, some children enjoy playing games and Youtube at home.

However, if you are reading this article, you probably want your child to be active and play even on rainy days, don’t you?

Here are my recommendations for indoor playgrounds.




Free Facility 無料の施設 

In Japan, each city has many public children’s play facilities. These comfortable facilities are indoors, fully equipped with playground equipment, and offer diaper changing and breastfeeding facilities. Staff members are also assigned to support child-rearing, making it a place where those raising children can easily go and relax.


Community Center 公民館・交流館

交流館(こうちゅうかん・KORYUKAN)Exchange halls in each area of ​​Toyota City. 

There is a children’s space and a book corner where you can spend free time.

Indoor playground equipments

There is also a play room for small children on the 1st floor of the Traffic Safety Learning Center

These facilities are free and have plenty of parking!

The indoor facilities are nice because you can play regardless of the temperature and weather outside.

My favorite is the Toyota City Science Museum . There is also a planetarium, and you can play different from the park. Kiratto Yota on the 2nd floor of Toyota City Science Museum also has a nursery room and a nursing room, which was very helpful when I went with my baby.
