Jump Theme Park J-World Closes With Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Event

J-World To Close on February 17th, 2019

Fans of manga and anime who live in Japan or have lived or visited Tokyo in the past six years may have fond memories of the hours they spent at the J-World Theme Park in Ikebukuro. The indoor amusement park featuring popular works from Jump manga and anime has been entertaining fans ever since 2013 with exciting regular attractions featuring Naruto, Gintama, One Piece and Dragon Ball Z, as well as a lineup of regularly changing temporary attractions.

Sadly, J-World is closing its doors on February 17th, 2019. Several temporary attractions are being held simultaneously during the establishment's Grande Finale, focusing on Naruto and Boruto, Gintama, the Dragon Ball Super Brolly film, and Haikyu. However, from what we can tell, the most intricate and content-rich event will be a special attraction planned from January 16th to February 17th based on the currently airing anime version of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, now in its fourth season focusing on the Golden Wind arc.


J-World Event on Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind

The event is centered around a theater attraction but also includes mini-games, limited goods available at the gift shop and special menu items available at the food court.

Theater Attraction: Ristorante With The Gang

While enjoying tea and cookies (see below) at a table, you can choose between two scenarios which will unfold on a screen in front of you, "Italy" and "Naples" (depending on what time you attend). This attraction will give you the feeling you've become a character in one of the scenes of the anime.

Story

(Unofficial translation based on the press release)

One day, you stop into a ristorante in Naples. The ristorante is crowded with customers, and at a table near you, six men are engaged in a heated discussion about something.

"I brought along the new member I told you about yesterday!"

"Let me introduce myself. I'm Giorno Giovanna!"

As you enjoy you time in the ristorante over a cup of tea, one of the six men approaches you.

"Hey, did something happen?"

"Well, fate must have arranged for us to meet like this. If there's anything I can do, I'd like to help."

You've just moved to Naples. Will you ask them for recommendations on places to go and shops to visit? Or will you ask them about the recent goings-on in the city? The choice is yours.

This is the story of an extraordinary encounter in the middle of an ordinary daily scene.
