Although MOOMINVALLEY PARK is located in Saitama Prefecture, it is easily accessible from Ikebukuro or Shinjuku by Seibu Lines. It is recommended to get a ticket pass, which includes a park admission ticket, a Seibu 1 Day Pass (except for the Seibu Tamagawa Line), and a bus ticket for a round trip between Hanno Sta./Higashi-Hanno Sta. and the park.

Welcome to the Edo Period!


Along with your trip to MOOMINVALLEY PARK, you can also visit Kawagoe (Hon-Kawagoe Sta.) by using the “MOOMINVALLEY PARK Ticket & Travel Pass” to feel the atmosphere of the Edo period! Also known as “Little Edo,” Kawagoe retains some of the streetscapes with kura-zukuri buildings from the Edo period (the 17th to 19th centuries), offering people the opportunity to see the remnants of Edo, which are now hard to find in Tokyo. Kawagoe is easily accessible from both MOOMINVALLEY PARK and Shinjuku/Ikebukuro, so you should take an easy side trip to have a look!
