Sega Joypolis , Odaiba Tokyo Review : Tips on how to maximize your One Day passport.




It is time to visit Joypolis , Tokyo!



Over the past 5 years, we had been to Tokyo for about 4 times. We had always stayed in Odaiba during the holidays and had passed by Joypolis countless of times. The reason why we missed it in the past was because we were too young to enjoy the rides within. It all changed when we visited Tokyo last December.

With the help of Klook, we got our online tickets pretrip and am all ready for the rides ahead.  Sega Tokyo turned out to be a fun outing for us and one afternoon trip there was just not enough. Let us give you a sneak peek  on what to expect.
