Orbi Yokohama – Virtual Experiences to Learn and Enjoy Nature

Updated October 15, 2019

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.
