Asobuild is an interactive indoor entertainment center likely to please visitors of any age and with easy access from Yokohama Station.
The building is divided into sections by floor, with each area offering a different theme or targeted age:
On the rooftop, you’ll find multiple courts for sports and activities–visitors can play futsal, basketball, or participate in baseball workshops with former professional ballplayers.
One floor down on 4F, the PuChu! Kids Park perfectly caters to younger crowds, with play zones aimed at a variety of ages.
Monotory, on the third floor, allows visitors to get crafty at any of the 200 workshops offered by artisans, with products ranging from pottery to leather accessories to candles, and many more.
Those seeking a more challenging experience may want to try the Escape Rooms on the second floor. The light-mapping exhibition, Ocean by Naked (until January 27, 2020), provides a fun, interactive space to explore underwater worlds. Asobuild also housed the quirky Unko Museum (until September 30, 2019), a technicolor exhibit devoted entirely to poop.
When it’s time for a break, the first floor brings together 18 local food and drink establishments. Whether your tastes run to stand-up sushi, ramen, curry or the city’s famous shumai (Chinese-style dumplings) from Kiyoken, you’ll find something to settle any appetite.
Below ground, the moody Pitch Club invites bar-goers to relax in the vintage, dim-lit lounge after hours.
