If you are looking for things to do in Narita International Airport terminal with the kids while waiting for your plane after traveling Japan, you’ll be happy to know that Narita Airport has EIGHT soft play areas.

Called Kid’s Parks, they are scattered throughout Narita Airport Terminal 1, Narita Airport Terminal 2 and Narita Airport Terminal 3.

The reality is that these soft play areas are not going to win any awards for creativity or design, but they will be helpful for those with children under 5.

Older kids will be bored out of their mind by these Narita airport playgrounds, so plan ahead.

Things to Do in Narita Airport with Kids – KIDS PARK

 We love a good soft play area to run off the kids’ energy before flight time!

All Narita Airport playground soft play areas have large foam blocks barriers surrounding soft mats and a few random toys.

The blocks form an enclosure to contain babies and toddlers. They double as seats for parents and carers too.

All the kid’s park areas are filled with:

  • small-size play equipment including foam blocks
  • rockers
  • miniature slides
  • crawl-through play equipment, and
  • the odd toy truck or car too.

Kid’s Park Play Area

The exception to the rule is the Kids Park on the 3rd floor near Gate 51.

This Narita Playground Kid’s park is in a dedicated room.

This indoor playground in Tokyo Narita airport is ideal when your kids are being loud, and disturbing other passengers, but still need to move, wriggle and generally be noisy.

Children must be accompanied by an adult to use these kid’s play areas.
