J-World Tokyo Adds English, Chinese To Website

You may remember our report from last year about J-World Tokyo, the theme park based on famous Shonen Jump properties like One Piece, Dragon Ball and Naruto.

At the time, we noted many of the rides and attractions feature English translations, which is great, but one important missing piece of the foreigner-friendly puzzle was the theme park’s homepage, which was only in Japanese. On-site English signs don’t mean a lot if your visitors can’t find the park in the first place, right?

As of this month, that’s been remedied, reports the Asahi Shinbun. J-World Tokyo, which is looking to attract more foreign visitors, has added English and Chinese to their page. There are also plans for J-World Tokyo to sell tickets through JAPANiCAN.com, a travel agency for tourists (Otaku USA readers, however, are clued in enough to buy their ticket onsite and skip those annoying surcharges).

Anyway, check out J-World Tokyo’s new English page and our review and tell us with a straight face you don’t want to go. You can’t do it, can you!

Mmm, dessrets…
