Just by taking the Seibu Ikebukuro Line from Ikebukuro Station, you can take yourself to one of the most famous amusement parks in Tokyo! That amusement park is called Toshimaen and it is definitely an enjoyable place to spend the upcoming summer days!
As I mentioned, Toshimaen is an amusement park - so of course there are rides and attractions that can be enjoyed! However, there is something much better in Toshimaen that I truly recommend to you – the abundant pools! There are giant wave pools, pools with rapids, pools with waterfalls, pools for competitive swimming, and regular pools that can be enjoyed by people of all ages – with families, friends, and even with your loved one!
There is more than swimming to amuse yourself with at Toshimaen - enjoy the water slides! The water slides are called "HYDRO POLIS". Toshimaen possesses four types of water slides which are also the biggest slides in the prefecture. One type of water slide is the thrilling type. It does not have a snake-shaped path, so you fall straight down with full speed from a height of 22 meters! Other types of water slides to be enjoyed are a tube slide and others that wiggle left and right. Although it takes quite a lot of climbing to get to the top of the water slides, it will fill your heart with excitement.
The water slides here at Toshimaen are among the most famous and most popular water slides in Tokyo; so they are definitely worth experiencing! Why not go to Toshimaen and start your summer off with a splash!
*Entrance fee for the swimming pools at Toshimaen is JPY3800 for adults, JPY2800 for children 110cm and above in height, and JPY1800 for children 110cm and lower in height. Please keep in mind that people with noticeable tatoos will not be accepted into the pool.
