The Laguna Gamagori marine resort complex has announced on Monday that it will host a "One Piece Memorial Log in Lagunasia" theme park attraction from March 20 to June 27. While there have been theme park exhibits based on the One Piece anime franchise before, Laguna Gamagori promotes the new project as Japan's first attraction to follow and recreate the journey of the pirate captain Luffy and his gang.
The complex is located in Gamagori City in the central Japanese prefecture of Aichi, and it already held a "Mighty Atom Exhibition in Lagunasia" event from September to November of last year. That earlier event featured a statue of Tezuka's Astro Boy (Mighty Atom) character which stood over three meters (10 feet) tall.
Update: Gamagori City's spelling corrected. Thanks, ipooka.
