Naruto Theme Park Opens in Hyogo (Nijigen No Mori)
Have you dreamed of being in the anime ‘Naruto‘? Have you always wanted to eat Ichiraku Ramen and try to become Hokage? WELL NOW YOU CAN at the new Naruto section of Nijigen No Mori (A HUGE anime theme park)! The theme park is located near to Osaka so will need to be accessed via the Shinkansen. But this is great for those wanting to see other areas of Japan and not just Tokyo! It is also cheaper for tourists to travel via Shinkansen as you can obtain a Japan Rail Pass!
The Naruto area is made up of many different activities that can be completed throughout the park. These activities can then be ticked off on your scroll that you receive when entering the park! Some activities are quiz type questions and some are physical activities, such as the Uchiha and Uzumaki ninja climbing maze! These activities are categorized into to ‘missions’ which are the main focus of the Naruto park!
2. Non-Physical Missions
In terms of the non-physical activities, these need to be completed by working out the quiz from a set of symbol clues! If you’re worried about language…don’t be! All the signs throughout the park are written in Japanese, English and Chinese but you don’t really need them to complete the tasks!
The way they have set out the park is truly amazing as it really makes you feel like you’re a ninja in the anime! It’s not just all about the tasks either, as you go through the park there are amazing decorations and life size figures of characters from the anime for you to take pictures with! This park really can be enjoyed by Naruto fans of all ages!
3. Physical Missions
The physical activities (The maze), is completed by climbing around it and trying to find stamps which you then stamp your scroll with! The maze is fairly challenging whether you’re a child or an adult as you need to climb quite a lot! So if you’re going to partake in it, make sure to wear comfy shoes!
The way they have set out the maze really makes you feel like you’re a ninja due to all the climbing you need to complete! The people who made this park really have done an amazing job at making it as close to the anime as possible!
Once you’re done with all those activities, you’re surely going to be hungry! So it’s time to grab some food at the real life ICHIRAKU RAMEN SHOP! The ramen is super tasty, just like Naruto says in the anime!!
They have 3 different ramen types on offer: Shio (Salt), Miso and Tonkotsu (Pork soup)! The ramen also comes with seaweed that has the logo printed on to it! It’s so cute you won’t want to eat it!
The ramen is decorated to look exactly like the anime with all the toppings matching the anime ramen!
