Located on the 60th floor of Sunshine City sits Sky Circus, a hands on observatory with Virtual Reality stations, that kids and adults can enjoy. Enjoy a panoramic view of the city while enjoying the colorful attractions – many with English instruction.

Sky Circus will keep your kids engaged. Some of our favorite attractions were the tunnel of light and mirror with video projection, sensory wall and sky hole. Virtual Reality stations are an added fee (400-600 JPY) and for older kids/adults. Note some attractions may change. Sky Circus allows visitors to leave and return the same day, just remember to get your hand stamped on your way out. Visit in the morning then couple with a visit to the Sunshine Aquarium or shop in Sunshine City which houses a number of family friendly restaurants, shops and character goods stores – Disney, Hello Kitty, Pokemon, Snoopy & Rikkuman to name a few.

Remember to visit the Fountain Plaza located in Sunshine City`s Alpa B1 for their video and water show which takes place twice an hour (every half hour) when scheduled. We were mesmerized with the music, video and show. Here is the March 2018 Schedule; 3/19  10:00-23:00; 3/20  10:00-15:00, 3/21  20:30-23:00 and  3/22 10:00-23:00.
