SMALL WORLDS TOKYO: New Details Drop On Sailor Moon & Evangelion Areas at Tokyo’s Miniature Theme Park
The date has finally been revealed for the opening of the all-new SMALL WORLDS TOKYO in Tokyo’s Ariake district: April 25, 2020.
The park will cover an 8,000m2 area across its four floors: the Departure Floor where visitors arrive at the doorstep of the world of SMALL WORLDS TOKYO, the Departure Lounge where you can enjoy delicious food from around the world, SMALL WORLDS where you are thrown into multiple different worlds, and the Creators Floor where you will get to see these miniature worlds being created on a day-to-day basis.
The main floor, SMALL WORLDS, is made up of seven areas: the Kansai International Airport Area, the Space Center Area, World Streets Area, Sailor Moon Area, Neon Genesis Evangelion Tokyo-3 Area, Neon Genesis Evangelion Evangelion Cage Area, and the newly-announced Tokyo Area which for now is a tentative title as they begin preparations for rolling out details about it.
A new photo has been released, as pictured above, of the highly-anticipated Sailor Moon Area. It showcases the outside of series protagonist Usagi Tsukino’s house which the park confirms is now complete.
The Neon Genesis Evangelion Tokyo-3 Area will also feature a visual attraction that makes use for AR/VR technology. It was made in collaboration with South Korean director Jae Cheol Hong. The park will also open a “Special Area” which will feature a miniature remodelling of Shurijo Castle in Okinawa, which was destroyed last month as a result of a fire. It will open sometime next year, and be subsequently moved to SMALL WORLDS OKINAWA, a new site set to open in 2021.
The Citizens Rights Figure Program, which opened in August, received such overwhelming praise a second run began on November 29. The program scans a 3D model a person and have a figure of themselves placed in the area of their choice. The areas people can place themselves in this time are the Kansai International Airport Area, Space Center Area, and World Streets Area.
