I recently discovered “US Land” Indoor Play Park in the Urasoe Shopping Center (USC) building just outside Camp Kinser’s gate 3 “tower’s gate” today. Apparently, I’m a little slow on the uptake because it’s been around for a few years and I’ve walked by it a few times and never paid attention to what it was because the front looks like a video arcade. Today I noticed there is actually more to it!
After you pay ¥300 to get your membership card they give you a receipt with the time on it and you can stay as long as you’d like. You are charged a fee for every 15 minutes that you are there unless you pay for an all-day pass (on the weekdays) or a 3-hour pass (on the weekends). As you walk in, there is a large fish tank that you can practice catch and release fishing from.
There are a small arcade area and a few rides for the little kids. There are also massage chairs for the parents in front of the ball pit/climbing playground area. After that, there is a small trampoline and a large indoor bouncy house.
They have a costume/dress up area and 3 mini stores that the kids can pretend they are shopping at. A plastic rolling ball kids can climb into and roll themselves over in is fun too. There’s a kid’s sized air hockey table in the back and a regular sized ping pong table. They even have a drink machine.
The only thing this place is missing is a bathroom, but you are allowed to leave and come back in without getting charged again. This was the perfect little detour for us on this rainy day. It’s just a hop skip and jumps from Kinser, so check it out when you can. It’s easy to get there.
