Children’s Waiting Room

We, as the FAOPS administrator, set up a waiting room for children in Kobe International Exhibition Hall (1st floor, 2nd building). Our stuff members will be stationed and children can study by themselves in this room. Children aged 11 years or older can stay alone. Children aged 10 years or younger can also use this room if their guardian stays with them. Lunch-time use is welcome.

Please note:
•  Children aged 11 years or older can stay in this room alone. However, when they come there for the first time, they have to be accompanied by their guardian, and the guardian has to fill in contact information.
•  Children younger than 11 years old must be accompanied by their guardian all the time.
•  We do not provide any food or drink other than bottled water. Bring your own.
•  Our staff members only manage children’s entrance and exit. We are not responsible for any accidents or other troubles.
