J-World Tokyo, Japan’s indoor anime theme park
J-World Tokyo is anime styled theme park in Ikebukuro’s Sunshine City, featuring famous characters like Naruto, Goku and Monkey D. Luffy. This place is a wonderland for kids, so you can expect large hordes of little fans running around alongside you. In J-World you’ll find tons of merchandise including t-shirts, stationary, toys and a bunch more. You’ll be able to have a blast here and find a great gift for someone back home at the same time.
Map of J-World Tokyo
J-World is separated into multiple zones that each feature a different manga or anime, you can see on the map that there is a huge section dedicated strictly to One Piece! It is important to note that all of the attractions are in Japanese but if needed an English guide will be provided for you.
The center core is near the entrance hall, people gather here to interact with their favorite characters! Giving one of the characters a touch on the screen will make them appear on the projected walls around you.
One Piece Area
With One Piece still going strong as one of the most popular manga and anime series in Japan, it is no wonder why there is such a large area for the series. Here you can see one of the most famous ship cannons from the series!
In the distance you can see one of the areas for the “Chopper Quest” game.
“Shiro Mokuba” Carousel
The Shiro Mokuba Carousel is a fun ride for kids, you can ride on different themed motorcycles around the room. Who doesn’t love a good old fashioned ride.
Chopper Quest is a popular attraction at J-World where the player is tasked with finding Luffy with the help of Chopper. On your adventure you’ll have to complete some games to win, it’s a lot of fun.
“Soldier Dock” Adventure
The Soldier Dock ride, is a short little trip through the world of One Piece on a family sized pirate ship. This ride is similar to some of the older Disney rides, but with some video for you to see as well.
Near the entrance you’ll find a One Piece themed cafe called Cafe Mademoiselle. Here you are able to buy Luffy themed pilaf or Chopper shaped ice cream among many other treats if you are feeling a bit hungry.
In the glass case you’ll find the typical Japanese model food to get an idea of what your meal will look like, so cool right?
Dragon Ball Area
With a little luck you’ll soon be greeted by the great Shenron who guards this amazing Dragon Ball section of J-World.
Around the corner you’ll have a chance to finally ride the nimbus for a photo opportunity.
If you are looking for a small gift for a loved one or a Dragon Ball fan, the capsule machines are a great chance. There are many extremely unique toys to try your luck at finding.
My favorite thing about the Dragon Ball area are the lifelike models. Here you can see Raditz’ battle damaged armor in the capsule corp themed room.
Last but not least is the amazing Saiyan pod, I’ve wanted one since I was a kid! Here you’ll have a chance to sit inside it for a photo opportunity.
Shoot! “KAMEHAMEHA” is a virtual reality experience that allows you to battle alongside Goku and learn to use the Kamehameha technique!
Here you can see the ticket booth and the access area of the attraction.
The Naruto section of J-World might be a little disappointing for some as it only has one main attraction, the Ninkai Taisen Emaki. In the Naruto attraction, you’ll battle other ninja with by throwing objects and solving puzzles.
J-Carnival is a large section dedicated to arcade games and crane machines that are Jump character themed. You’ll find stuff here for Prince of Tennis, Gintama and many others.
They have classic carnival style games as well, such as shooting basketballs into the hoop for points and prizes. Each game has a guide to help English speakers if needed.
Also in the area you’ll find purikura machines for taking pictures with your favorite characters or posing with your friends.
In the crane game machines you’ll find high quality figures to be won if you spend the time and effort. Check out that Ace Statue!
J-World kitchen has many different themed meals for you to try, from Dragon Ball Z fried chicken to Bleach themed seafood Pasta. There is something here for everyone. If you need help, there are English menu’s available for you.
Right next to the J-World Kitchen is the Souvenir section called J-World Store. In this area you’ll find tons of goods related to your favorite characters, shirts, buttons and a ton more.
Take a look at those cute character stickers at the top!
