For children, KidZania Tokyo in Toyosu is one unique place where children can simulate a real "on the job experience" in a realistic miniature city. Children choose their occupation out of nearly 100 jobs such as a Fire fighter, Beauty consultant, Chef, or Entertainer, and work and earn money like real workers. They can spend their hard-earned money at the stores there, eat the food products they make, or take-home creations such as DVDs or newspapers as give-aways.
