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.
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...
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.
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
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.
