New ‘Shonen Jump’ Theme Park Opening In Tokyo Next Year

You may consider yourself a fan of Naruto or One Piece because you enjoy the manga, but if you were a real fan, you’d already have booked yourself a flight to Tokyo so that you could hang out in the just-announced Weekly Shonen Jump indoor theme park that will open next year. Just sayin’.

In addition to areas based around three of Weekly Shonen Jump‘s most popular strips – One Piece, Naruto and Dragon Ball Z – the park, which will take up just over 6,000 square meters of the third floor of the Sunshine City World Import Mart in Ikebukuro, Tokyo, will also feature a “Hero’s Area” for other characters from the legendary manga anthology, as well as an “Amusement Area,” “Food & Desert Area” and, of course, a “Goods Shop” which will sell limited-edition Shonen Jump merchandise.

The park was announced today by Bandai Namco Group, and is expected to open at some point in Summer 2013. This is far from the first time that Bandai Namco has opened its own theme park, and not even the first time that the company has opened a theme park in the Sunshine City World Import Mall; the company’s “Namja Town” park is already open on the second and third floors of the mall, and will give up its third floor real estate to make the Shonen Jump park a reality.
