Can’t get enough of NARUTO? Japan’s famous amusement park Fuji-Q Highland announced the official opening of the NARUTO X BORUTO Fuji Hidden Leaf Village last July 26, 2019. It looks amazing, so let’s check it out!
As you know NARUTO is the world-famous manga and anime series, with the spin-off series BORUTO: Naruto Next Generations. It’s about Naruto’s son Boruto becoming massively popular. In Fuji-Q, the park’s themed area features Konohagakure where Naruto and Boruto live, and includes six new facilities, including a museum and a photo studio, with the main attraction a 3D Shooting Ride—which is exactly what it sounds like.
Ride the 3D Shooting Ride Kagaku Ningu Dojo to gauge your ninja skills!
In the 3D Shooting Ride Kagaku Ningu Dojo, guests will board a four-seater ride, wear 3D glasses, and get to participate in the Ninjutsu Experience Festival. With Boruto and other characters guiding you, you shoot with the ninja guns together with Sasuke, Kakashi, and other shinobis (a.k.a. ninjas) throughout the ride. You can also check out your shinobi aptitude at the end of the ride based on your shooting score! Can you get a Hokage-level (the best of all shinobi) score? The ride costs ¥1,500 by itself, or free when using the Free Pass Ticket.
From top: Kintaro Candy Set (¥770), Acrylic Stand-ball Chain (¥540), Hand fan (¥2,160), Towel ¥1,560), Uchiwa fan (¥650). Prices are tax-excluded.
Of course, no trip to Fuji-Q is complete without a bunch of original goods! A bunch of original NARUTO goods will be sold here—including one that depicts original visual of Team 7 with Mt. Fuji as the backdrop.
Hooded bath towel (¥4,000), for all you Hokage-wannabes.
As hardcore fans know, Naruto’s diet basically consists of instant ramen noodles or ramen from Ichiraku. Here in Fuji-Q, get the full Ichiraku Ramen experience, along with themed drinks and desserts!
Shinobi Godaikoku (Five Great Shinobi Countries) Ramen (miso tonkotsu or soy sauce based broth available), ¥1,380
Ichiraku Ramen Naruto Rasengan Special (Cotton candy included), ¥1,280. (Please do not throw the cotton candy a la Rasengan.)

Fuji-Q’s sweets shop named Kanmido will also start selling character-based goodies, as well as summer-limited varieties!

Sarada’s Tuna Egg Salad Taiyaki, ¥400.
Ninja Techniques Theater (Nindoukan) is a 180-degree theater that condenses Naruto and Sasuke’s epic scenes, the Hokage’s chamber, as well as the world view of Naruto in Naruto Shippuden. Truly a must-visit for Naruto fans. Entrance costs ¥800 by itself, or free when using the Free Pass Ticket.
Kaleidoscope (Mangekyou) Photo Studio makes you combine the different characters in the Naruto universe into one shot. You can also bring back home these memories by putting it in the original design photo frame. There is also a rental service for Hokage cloaks and other items!
Other attractions include arcade games where you can get original goods and a mystery solving rally. There are also photo spots where you can take photos with Gamakichi and other popular characters.
The park’s Highland Resort Hotel & Spa introduces a new NARUTO room as well! The Nin no Ma – Japanese Ninja Suit Room NARUTO is a Japanese-style room that reproduces the world view of Naruto Shippuden, and is composed of the Yin-Yang Release (a.k.a. Shadow and Light Style). Here, guests can start their “training” by solving various tricks and puzzles. Those who have successfully cleared the mission throughout their stay can get the Shinobi Certificate upon checkout.
These awesome Yukata amenities are also available!
A maximum of four people can stay in the room, with one person costing ¥17,550, depending on the season. Reservations can only be made on the website.
Lastly, travel to Fuji-Q NARUTO-style with the specially-designed trains and busses connecting Otsuki Station to Kawaguchiko Station to the Fujikyu line. How awesome is that?
