Japan – Do you still remember Konohagakure in Japan’s Awaji Island Anime Park? Well, tourist attractions that pamper Naruto fans now have the latest facilities, namely Hokage Villa.
Awaji Island Anime Park or Nijigen no Mori is a recreational park created to resemble the village of Konoha, the village where Naruto and his friends live. The recreation park, which can be taken for 4 hours by train from Tokyo, was opened on April 20, 2019.
The presence of this tourist spot was greeted enthusiastically by Naruto fans and manga in general. Their fans can see Konoha landmarks such as the village gate, the Hokage Rock statue, the Ichiraku Ramen Shop, and figures from the comic works by Masashi Kishimoto.
Not only can they take pictures and play there, but visitors can also stay at the Hotel GRAND CHARIOT Hokutoshichisei 135 °, which offers the sensation of glamping. Now, to further spoil visitors, the manager of the recreation park launched a new facility in the hotel, namely Hokage no Villa or Villa Hokage on May 25, 2020.
Just as the name suggests, Konohaga is designed to look like the Konoha Hokage office that we have seen in Naruto comics or animation. Inside this villa, visitors can see various Naruto- themed decorations, ranging from beds, bathrooms, to the living room.
The nice thing is that each guest will also get a set of souvenirs in the form of Naruto Yukata, Sasuke Yukata, Naruto bags, candy with Naruto characters, Hokage umbrellas, Ichiraku’s face towel, and other special themed towels.
This Hokage villa starts to open online reservations starting June 1, 2020. Besides being able to get room facilities, guests also get free tickets for the Naruto & Boruto Shinobi Zato rides at Awaji Island Anime Park. Ticket prices range from 500-3,300 yen ($5-$30 US Dollars) and open from 10:00 to 22:00 local time.
