Nijigen no Mori Theme Park

HOME > Japan’s Local Treasures > Nijigen no Mori Theme Park


An anime and manga inspired amusement park on Awaji Island





Nijigen no Mori is a sensational theme park that combines the worlds of Japanese manga, anime, and gaming with the latest technology. Located just southwest of Osaka, in Hyogo Prefectural Park on Awaji Island, visit as a day trip or stay overnight at the Grand Chariot Hokutoshichisei135°, a glamping facility with cottages within the park itself.

In the Crayon Shin-chan Adventure Park, glide over treetops and a lake on 225m and 140m ziplines as you are squirted by water cannons and test your fitness on a huge, fort-like athletics course. There are four courses of varying difficulty levels to accommodate for children to adults. Meanwhile, key characters from the Naruto ninja manga and anime series, Naruto and Boruto will give you the chance to train as a ninja in a recreation of the Hidden Leaf Village, complete with a replica of Hokage Rock — the Mount Rushmore-like monument to the leaders of the Hidden Leaf Village that all fans of the manga series will recognize.

In October 2020, the world’s largest ‘life-size’ Godzilla was unveiled, measuring 23 meters (75 feet) high, 25 meters (82 feet) wide and 55 meters (180 feet) long. Part of the Godzilla Interception Operation Awaji attraction, take on the role of a scientist helping to tame the huge and go on a thrilling zipline ride through Godzilla’s mouth!

Another new attraction opened in May 2021 was DRAGON QUEST ISLAND: Zoma and the Archipelago's Origin, an outdoor role-playing (RPG) attraction where you become the protagonist of the story and explore the world of Dragon Quest through a fusion of real and digital elements.

Nijigen no Mori uses the latest technology to create fantasy attractions that will make you feel as though you have been pulled into the hit stories of Japanese pop culture. No matter what your age, you are sure to be captivated!
