Tobu World Square is a theme park in Tochigi that exhibits the most popular structures and heritage sites across the world. In just one visit, vagabonds will be able to see 1/25th scale replicas of these structures.
The park is divided into six zones, which is based on the different regions of the world. There are two zones for Japan: the Japan Zone that exhibits the cultural treasures of Japan such as Himeji Castle, Todaiji, The Golden Pavilion and Kiyomizu-dera; and the Modern Japan Zone, displaying the modern and prominent structures in Japan such as Diet Building, Tokyo Skytree, Tokyo Dome, and Tokyo Tower. A replica of Narita airport is also featured in this zone.
Next is the Asia Zone, where the most-known sites in Japan's neighboring countries are displayed such as China's Forbidden City and The Great Wall, Taj Mahal of India, and Angkor Wat of Cambodia.
The park will also take you to Europe, where you feel going to The Parthenon, The Colosseum, The Leaning Tower of Pisa, St.Peter's Basilica, Notre Dame, and of course, the Eiffel Tower. The ancient pyramids and Sphinx in Egypt will also astound the visitors. The park also sees to it that you will experience America in your Japan excursion by featuring the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State building, World Trade Center, and other skyscrapers in USA.
All of the miniatures are replicated detail by detail, including the small human figures that are like visitors awed by these ostentatious structures.
