The theme park has everything you can ask for, from restaurants to rides, musicals to other such attractions. If you love Hello Kitty or cats in general, you must visit this park.
If you are linking this theme park to the famous Mount Fuji of Japan then you are not wrong. The park is at the base of Mount Fuji, hence, the name of the park. It is in Fujiyoshida, Yamanashi, Japan. The park has been running since 1968, yes, it’s an old one but still is present in the ‘to visit’ list of people who have a thing for theme parks and Japan. One of the reasons for this theme park being visited so much is the Fujiyama ride which seems to touch the sky! Not literally of course, but the ride is the longest and the tallest roller coaster in this theme park. In case you visit this one, eat light before trying it!
Joypolis is an amusement park which not only will swirl up your stomach with its rides but will also engage your hands and mind through its collection of arcade games. If you have heard that this amusement park is in China then yes, they are also in China along with Japan, the very first park was open in Yokohama, Japan in 1994, since then it is branching out in both countries. People love the concept of the combination of rides and arcades games, I mean, not everyone is a fan of rides, right?
Tokyo Disney Resort
Tokyo Disney Resort probably does not need any explanation about its theme, but I’ll anyway go ahead and tell you that it is Disney theme park which is now turned into a resort as well. The park is owned by Oriental Land Company and is licensed by Walt Disney Company making it the first Tokyo Disneyland. The resort has two theme parks and a Disney hotel and much more. Book a ticket for Urayasu, Chiba, Japan if you want to visit this resort that also has a park!
Toei Kyoto Studio Park
This is not only a park but parts of it are also a film set due to which movies have been shot here. The park was opened in 1975 and is situated in Kyoto, Japan. The most unique part of this park is that you will feel that you are in the Edo period as soon as you enter here as the theme is based on that. Situated in Toei Company’s Kyoto Studio, the park can provide a unique sense of calmness as the surrounding is something entirely different and unique than the themes of the other parts that were mentioned in the list above!
Well, these were some of the best theme parks in Japan that you should surely visit, I know none of them were anime-based because that, I feel, should have an entirely different list, dedicated to just anime theme parks, right!
