Legoland Japan, Nagoya レゴランド・ジャパン
Legoland Japan is a popular tourist attraction in Nagoya and part of the redevelopment of the Kinjofuto district, an area of reclaimed land which also includes the Port Messe Nagoya Convention Center and the nearby SCMAGLEV and Railway Park.
Legoland Japan opened in April 2017. It is part of the UK franchise of Legoland theme parks based on the popular Danish building brick for kids.
The very first Legoland opened in Denmark in 1968 and there are now Legolands in the UK, Germany, Dubai, the USA (California, Florida) and Malaysia. Future Legolands are planned for Shanghai, Korea and New York.
Legoland Japan appeals to children especially in the 3-12 age group. A Legoland Hotel and a Sea Life aquarium are under construction and will open in 2018.
