For six years, J-World Tokyo has attracted anime fans from around the world. It’s a small indoor theme park dedicated to the characters from Weekly Shounen Jump magazine. These include characters from Dragon Ball, Naruto, One Piece, Hunter x Hunter, Nisekoi, My Hero Academia, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, and many more. Just think of it as a small Disney Land, but with manga characters. However, the facility will be closing its doors in February 17, 2019.
However, the theme park is saying farewell in a big way by launching a “J-World Tokyo Grand Finale” campaign from December 21. They will also give away special Thank You stickers for the first 500 visitors to the theme park. These stickers have around 59 designs to choose from. And given that Jump has a ton of popular characters, expect them to be quite varied.
Aside from that, it will also feature a chronology of memories which will follow J-World’s history. And if you wanna cosplay there, you can, and it’s free! This is because attendees can rent the cosplays from the theme park’s J-COS! cosplay room for free starting 1st January.
Bandai Namco launched J-World Tokyo in Ikebukuro’s Sunshine City World Import Mart Building back in 2013. Since then, it has remained a staple for many anime fans visiting Japan.
