But it’s not Tokyo that’s being graced with the block-based attraction.

On their travels across Japan, many people skip right by Nagoya, which is kind of a shame. Sure, the capital of Aichi Prefecture may not be able to match the limitless variety of Tokyo or the historical pedigree of Kyoto, but Nagoya has its own set of attractions, such as a beautiful castle and the best chicken wings in the country.

Plus, come next spring, Nagoya will have something nowhere else in Japan does: a Legoland theme park. Yes there are already Legoland Discovery Centers in Tokyo and Osaka, but those are modestly sized indoor facilities attached to shopping malls. Nagoya’s Legoland will be a full-scale outdoor amusement park like those in Denmark and the U.S.

Currently under construction in the city’s Minato Ward, Nagoya’s Legoland is scheduled to open next year on April 1. One-day ticket pricing is yet to be announced, but commemorative annual passes, dubbed “1st to Play,” have already gone on sale through the park’s website here.

Priced at 17,300 (US$159) for adults and 13,300 for kids, bearers can enjoy unlimited visits to the park for one year starting on its official opening day, and will also be able to get a peek earlier than the general public on the park’s “preview days,” March 18-21, 2017.

The annual passes also get you a 10-percent discount on food and drink sold inside the park, and the implied promise of restaurants has us keeping our fingers crossed that one of them will be a human-sized version of the awesome Lego revolving sushi eatery we say earlier this spring.
