Gintama Zone in Shonen Jump Theme Park Let's You Hit Hijikata Where it Hurts
posted on by Eric Stimson
On April 24, a zone dedicated to Gintama will open at J-World, a theme park in Ikebukuro's Sunshine City shopping complex devoted to Shonen Jump properties. It will recreate the quasi-historic Edo of the source manga. Among its highlights will be a target practice area where participants can shoot Okita's bazooka at his vice commander, Hijikata. It includes voice recordings that change depending on where Hijikata is hit — and yes, you are supposed to aim for his crotch. Winners will receive original goods like pouches and bookmarks.

Elsewhere in the Gintama zone, visitors can expect to find designated photo spots, Justaway fortunes, and a cafe serving Gintama-inspired dishes like "Shinsengumi Honey Toast, Kondō Version" and "Gin's Strawberry Milk Mont Blanc" (pureed chestnuts with whipped cream).
