Naruto’s Hidden Leaf Village is Now a Theme Park in Japan

April 23, 2019
Most of us who grew up watching or reading “Naruto” have once dreamt of becoming a “Hokage,” much like the ninja protagonist of the popular manga/anime franchise.
But while the chances of becoming the strongest shinobi in the entire Hidden Leaf Village may be highly far-fetched, a slice of that dream can now be realized by visiting a newly-opened theme park in Japan.
On Saturday, the Nijigen no Mori theme park in Awaji Island, Hyogo Prefecture unveiled the “Naruto” attraction.
The attraction brings to life many iconic segments from the “Naruto” lore, including the “Konohagakure no Sato” village itself, complete with the giant Hokage Iwa/Hokage Rock.
