One of the few indoor amusement parks in Odaiba, Tokyo Joypolis is packed with Sega’s virtual reality attractions across three floors. There are a total of 21 thrilling rides and activities, most of which are available in English. Enjoy a rafting adventure along the Wild River or board the Wild Wing, a hang-glider flying over tropical islands. For even greater thrills, you and up to five of your friends can arm yourselves with laser guns and fight zombies at the Zero Latency VR attraction (reservations essential; additional fee applies ¥1,800, Sat, Sun & hols ¥2,000 per person).
With temperatures regularly dropping below 10ºC, winter in Tokyo is freezing, but there’s no need to be stuck in your hotel room with the heating on. Tokyo has some fantastic indoor amusement and theme parks that are perfect for both adults and kids, where you can escape into virtual reality, hang out with Hello Kitty and friends, play with anime pirate Luffy and his crew, and plenty more besides. You’ll forget about the single-digit chills outside in no time.
