The worldwide popularity of the anime series Naruto has paved the way to the opening of its own theme park.

Nijigen no Mori, which is located in Awaji, Hyogo Prefecture (about an hour away from Kobe) also opened a theme park based on the manga/anime and the spin-off sequel, Boruto.

Dubbed the Naruto & Boruto Shinobi-Zato (Naruto & Boruto Ninja Village), the theme park features a series of attractions made to replicate iconic landmarks from the series.

Located on the grounds of the Hyogo Prefectural Awajishima Park, the 8,000-square-meter Hidden Leaf experience is fittingly nestled in the park’s forest. Notable landmarks at the theme park will include the gate to the village, Hokage Rock and Ramen Ichiraku. Other standout attractions at the theme park include life-sized models of many characters, a three-story maze, augmented reality displays, a jutsu photo cutout section and more.
