Tokyo Dome City – Part II: Enjoy Tokyo Dome City

Now that you’ve got your bike parked (or took the train and walked) it’s time to head to Tokyo Dome City. From the bike park mentioned in Part I, head south on foot, and at the next light hang a left. This puts you onto a sidewalk which has an entrance to the Tokyo Dome City courtyard.

Shops (the LaQua area) are on the right, including a great nana’s green tea on the 2nd floor on your left, and the ticket booth in a few yards ahead on the right. There’s also a Baskin Robbins nearby as well as a host of other shops. nana’s green tea is known for their huge matcha green tea sundaes.

You can buy an individual attraction ticket, or a pass for around $40. There’s a roller coaster, ferris wheel, and water ride. After purchasing your ticket(s), keep heading south for the stairs or elevator to the rides. Some are up on the 4th + 5th floors.

You can walk the shopping + food levels before or after the rides. Most of them are on the left.
