Japan 2017: The Happy Boy at Thomas Land

One of the main reasons we went to Fuji-Q Highland is to visit Thomas Land.  Our little boy is so much fond of Thomas and Friends since he was still a toddler until now and so visiting Thomas Land is a must for our Japan trip.




We were able to secure a free entrance pass to Fuji-Q Highland (thanks to the flyer we saw at Kawaguchiko station) so we decided to just buy Neo an all-day-pass to Thomas Land costing JPY2900 for kids 3-11 years old.

Thomas Land is every little boy’s heaven.  It is a theme park dedicated to all Thomas and Friends fanatics, just like our little boy.  Several statues of Thomas and his friends, such as Percy and James, are spread out through-out Thomas Land.





There are various ride attractions catered to the young kids.  All of these ride attractions are Thomas and Friends themed.  There’s the regular train rides which has Thomas and James as your trains.  There’s also a helicopter ride inspired by Harold.  And a lot more.










Also, there is so much Thomas and Friends inspired merchandises sold at the souvenir shop.  Aside from the usual toys, there are also unconventional souvenirs you can buy like macaroni noodles, tissue paper, washi tapes, toothbrushes, slippers, and a lot more.







With the all-day-pass, Neo can ride to all Thomas Land attractions without incurring additional cost to us…or so we thought.  Apparently, since Neo is still below 6 years old, a parent or guardian needs to accompany him in every Thomas Land attractions.  Each attraction cost around JPY200-400 to ride.  The hubby and I had to pay for every ride our little boy tried to accompany him.  The all-day-pass was not worth it.   L  So if you will go, just pay for each ride your little kid will take.




We spent so much in touring Thomas Land, but every yen spent was all worth it.  Our little boy was so happy.  I know that day spent at Thomas Land will forever be a happy memory for our little boy. J

  2. The theme park looks nice, medyo mahal lang kasi may bayad yung companion. But I think it is still worth it because Neo enjoyed the Thomas Land. Parang naLSS ako sa tunog ng Thomas, naalala ko bigla nung nakita yung mga trains. hehehe!

    1. Actually, it was a mistake for us to buy Neo the package. Sana we bought him tickets kada ride na lang. But still, happy na din since happy sya :)

  3. As I was reading this post, my little boy came up to my side because he saw the photos of Thomas. He didn't leave my side until I finished reading the article. He says he also wants to go to Thomas Land. Haha! I'm sure he's going to enjoy it too like your son did. :)

  4. Nate has watched a few Thomas and Friends episodes sa YouTube before pero I don't think tumatak na sa kanya ang palabas na 'to. I'm not sure at this age kung matutuwa na ba sya sa lugar na 'to, well of course, dahil train, matutuwa talaga sya. Pero ung si Thomas train talaga, baka hindi nya pa maappreciate. Saktong sakto lang sa edad ni Neo ang Japan visit nyo, sis.

    1. I agree about the souvenir shops! Even adults get hooked kasi to the cute things they sell.
