About

3 zones with differing themes

Tokyo’s Ikebukuro area is alive with young people. In particular, Sunshine 60 Avenue has a variety of establishments including movie theaters and game centers on either side of the street, and it is closed off from vehicular traffic all day except during the early morning and late night. Just beyond the hustle and bustle of people that always crowds this street is the Sunshine City building where shops for the young, an aquarium, a planetarium and many other facilities abound. Namjatown is an indoor theme park that is on the 2nd floor of Sunshine City. The park is divided into 3 areas. First off, there is Dokkingham Plaza where families can enjoy touring this town of attractions. Then, there is Fukubukuro 7th Shopping Avenue which has been created to resemble Japan of the 1950s with a retro feeling of nostalgia. There is also plenty to eat with Namja Gyoza Stadium where you can sample savory gyoza dumplings from all over the nation and Fukubukuro Dessert Yokocho with all sorts of cute decorated desserts. You can also enjoy rides, attractions and mystery-solving. The third area is Mononoke Bangaichi which has an atmosphere of being taken over by specters where you can try out 4 types of attractions.

Enjoy delicious meals and a Showa Era atmosphere

An especially recommended feature of Namjatown is Fukubukuro 7th Shopping Avenue. Recreating the retro atmosphere of an old-style shopping street from out of the Showa Era, noshing on gyoza from all parts of Japan and beer is one of the charms. At the old Gyoza Stadium, it all starts from the popular 4 shops of the Four Emperors of Gyoza as you compare the different types of tastiness of the dumplings from areas such as Yokohama’s Chinatown, Kobe and Nagasaki. Coming here, you can sample all of the gyoza of Japan.

Good creepy old time vibes
Namjatown is, I have to say, a bit unique. It is a fun park but is quite different from the fun parks I have been to before. I have been here twice, once in 2012 and once this year. I remember the park being so unique and fun, with it's dark (fake) alleys and little games, there was a merry go round and an ice cream shop and lots of things to do actually. But when I came back there the last time this year, lots of attractions had shut down and the park seemed to have lost its shine a bit. Evens, I had spent a wonderful afternoon there. Ticket entry prices were 500 yen and 3500 yen for the whole day.

Coal ice cream!
I love Namjatown; and it is probably the one redeeming feature of Sunshine City. There is one shop in particular I frequently visit with friends, and that is the store selling over 100 varieties of unusual flavoured ice cream. From shark fin to beef tongue, and even coal, you can have a lot of fun in Namjatown experimenting with the frankly weird ice cream flavours. There are other distractions here too, including Gyoza Town, where over ten stalls all sell different varieties of Japanese dumplings.
