Orbi Yokohama is a virtual learning nature exhibit with games, interactive video, and even a petting zoo, where kids can learn nature in a fun way.
If you like mixing tech with learning, this place is for you. “Giant, immersive, projected films” is their specialty. There’s enough to see for about 2-3 hours at a natural, slow pace.
It’s a great place to take kids. They get to have fun while learning and the exhibits don’t bore adults to death. 🙂
Besides the cool tech, there are plenty of opportunities to see and pet real animals too.
Yokohama isn’t technically Tokyo, but it’s so close I include it on TokyoSpark. You can easily make a day trip here in an hour or so from Tachikawa Station — faster if you’re already at a downtown station like Shibuya.
“Orbi Yokohama can definitely provide you with lots of interesting and new discoveries. Opened in 2013, Orbi Yokohama is an experience-oriented museum collaborated by BBC Earth and SEGA. When you visit Yokohama, this museum is absolutely a must-see spot.” Taiken Japan
+“It also features some of the world’s most stunning images of nature and living, breathing representatives of the animal kingdom, to create a unique place for both play and intuitive learning – one that creates a moving experience filled with a sense of intimacy.” Yokohama
