“DREAM PLACE FOR SHONEN JUMP FANS!”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

Saw the reviews before coming here and was pre-dissapointed since I highly trust most ratings in TA, but since I read/watch both Naruto and Dragon Ball, I need to check it out myself, and boy, its been a WONDERFUL experience!

This small theme park is located in Sunshine City mall, at Ikebukuro station.

Heads up, visitors need to have some level of understanding of the characters featured here from either Dragonball, Naruto or One Piece. Just like how Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Donald Ducks are familiar to western public, for Japanese, Naruto, Son Goku and Straw Hat Luffy are pretty mainstream for Japanese, not just kids but adults who grew up reading the mangas.

It's not really a themepark, more of interactive displays of all the characters from Jump characters. Each manga area will have at least one interactive gaming area where you can go by yourself or with 3-4 other people with you. The more, the merrier.

Entrance fee
1,300 yen for age 16 and above and 1,000 yen for children from 4-15 years old. It's a per day entrance btw. Separate fee for the mini games...

Locker room
Do take advantage of this, especially if you're bringing jacket or traveling in a bag pack cos you need to dress light in order to participate in the mini game. Since its a paid locker, do make sure to bring your money and/or credit card along as you need it for the amusement area (One-Piece, Naruto and Dragonball)...and BRING CAMERA with you! Lots of photo ops around.

Language
Like most attractions in Japan, its locals first, then foreigners. Ergo, most of the written instructions are in Japanese, but don't worry too much. Upon entry, the front desk person will hand you an English map along with summary of what each mini amusement park consists of. My Japanese is very basic, but that doesn't stop me from having fun and left to wonder what each corners have in store for you

J-World Store
This is the one place that you probably want to spend more money on. They are a few other branches of Jump store, but the other store might not have the same merchandise as its sold exclusively here. The store is located INSIDE the themepark, so only applies for those who have paid for the entrance fee.

Food Court (Cafe Mademoiselle, J-World Kitchen and J-Patisserie)
Go munch on Majinbu's red bean pau or some other sweet and savory food from Jump's most beloved characters :)

Not gonna spill more spoilers, but for those who are familiar with some of these characters, this is the place you don't wanna miss. Weekdays is the best time to go as there's no crowd here.

“Maybe it's too new?”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

I had high hopes for J-World since they were taking up a floor that use to be part of Namjatown. If you go to Namjatown first, you can use your ticket stub to get into J-World a little cheaper.

I was mostly disappointed. It has a lot of empty unused space. Maybe they were hoping it would be more crowded? It was cool that the staff had uniforms based off different shows though (the Dragonball area has staff wearing monk uniforms from the tournaments).

It's basically split into 3 main sections based on 3 shows: Dragonball, One Piece, and Naruto. There are interactive games and themed foods for each area. The games looked somewhat interesting, but were just blah. Little kids would have more fun as the games were quite simple.

I only played one main game and that was to search for the dragonballs. You have to look for monitors and use the dragon radar to activate a series of mini-games. Actually, it was amusing, but the mini-games were too easy too find as it was just a hallway. There were extra doors and pathways that were blocked off when we went, so I'm guessing they can change up the "maze."

There were a lot of capsule machines and claw games with exclusive toys/prizes which was fun yet annoying.

As of right now, I give it a low score, but perhaps given time they can fill it with more games or just something to make use of so much room. And definitely put more themed items in their gift store! There was barely anything there! Mostly puzzles and snacks!

“For One Piece die hards only”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

My 13 year old son, whos a big One Piece fan seemed to get something out of it but it seemed like a rip off to the rest of the family. Joypolis is better.

“Cute but all rides are expensive!”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

We paid very little for the ticket so we decided to go to this new theme park since it had just opened and it was meant to be a theme park for a series of manga/anime, including Dragonball, Natuto and One Piece. It was very cute, and I really liked the little shops and the drawings on the walls, but we were so disappointed by the fact that, once you get in, you actually have to pay a lot for every ride! We ended up doing only the biggest One Piece ride, which was ok but too expensive, even if we had our picture taken and we also got a gadget on our way out.

The only plus is that kids under 3 years old get in for free.
