Naruto played such a paramount role in the Japanese culture craze that took the nation by storm. Now, ardent fans can pay homage to their revered ninja at Nijigen no Mori, an anime theme park in Hyogo, Japan. Nijigen no Mori was formerly established as part of regional revitalisation policies and has recently added the renowned Naruto theme with hopes of attracting more visitors.
The theme park features attractions based on the iconic manga series, giving visitors the most surreal Naruto experience possible. Not only that, you can catch a glimpse of important figures, such as the Uchiha clan and more.
Famous monuments indigenous to the manga, such as Hokage Rock should not be foreign to you. Take a moment to marvel at this colossal monument while you are there.
Behold the wrath of the Nine-tailed Fox, one of the fearsome creatures in the Naruto series. It would have been boring if was just a statue, but the park has incorporated rock climbing to this attraction, making the entire experience more interactive.
The next time you visit Kyoto area in Japan, do consider making a stop-by at this attraction. There’s just so much to do, it will easily take up half a day to explore. Considering that its only recently introduced, its a good idea to visit this place before it gets overtaken by throngs of tourist.
