Tango Kingdom area is 34 hectare(comparison example: Tokyo Disney Land is 51 hectare), if you are interested to discover the entire area make sure you have enough time.

You can stay at this place as well, the accommodation is renovated in April 2015 so it is pretty new:D Also they are not expensive even private bathroom available in each rooms. I recommend to book with breakfast. There are some restaurants available for dinner, I think best to arrive before 17:00 cause information counter at Tango Kingdom is closed at 17:00.
