Fight back COVID-19 Precautionary measures against novel coronavirus at SMALL WORLDS

※Based on the idea of “a prototype introducing Japanese technologies,” SMALL WORLDS spreads its idea as a “prototype” of an indoor facility that has implemented protective measures against COVID-19 to the world.
In order to ensure that visitors can enjoy the park safely, SMALL WORLDS is taking protective measures against COVID-19 from the following 6 perspectives. We will also welcome any suggestions that you may have and make adjustments as needed. We thank you for your cooperation and support.

<Maximum capacity allowed>

  1. Limited number of entries:We limit the number of visitors to ensure everyone can fully enjoy their visits while still respecting a 2-meter distance from others.

    Visitors can purchase their tickets on the day of the visit, but we strongly advise you to purchase your ticket in advance via our official website.

  1. Ensuring the 2-meter distance:The holo-light projections will be used at the photo spots where people are likely to gather, to make it easier for visitors to see the 2-meter distance.
  2. Side-by-Side Layout:The exhibition layout is set in a lateral, side-by-side way to prevent visitors from any face-to-face contact.
