Visitors will need to book their tickets in advance. This is to ensure that everyone can avoid huge crowds and have a more leisurely experience.

Tickets will be available to book online on March 22 for visits between June 16 and September 30, 2023.

Adult tickets (for those 18 and older) are priced at ¥6,300, Junior tickets (ages 12-17) are ¥5,200, and Child tickets (ages 4-11) are ¥3,800. Children under four years old can enter free of charge.
