Experience a One Piece Winter and Hunt for Treasure at new Tokyo One Piece Event
posted on by Amanda Ellard
"This winter, let's treasure!" is the catchphrase of the illuminated, seasonal One Piece event "WINTER ONE PIECE 2016-2017" which includes Japan's largest snow dome (six meters in diameter). The motif is cherry blossoms' miraculous winter bloom. Once inside the dome, located at Tokyo Tower, you'll be immersed in cherry blossom colored illuminations, fluttering snow, and projections of the anime's famous scenes.
The winter event will also hold a limited-time "The Adventures on Tongari Island" treasure hunt event at Tokyo One Piece Tower and Tokyo Tower. The hands-on treasure hunt encourages participants to seek out the nest of rare animals, the "Tongari Tons", by deciphering a mystery written on an ancient document discovered by Luffy, Usopp, and Chopper. It starts November 1 with the beginner's course "Find the Mythic Rare Beast on Tongari Island" and will also include a regular level play-though. The game plans to add an unintelligible decoding advance level course starting January 1.
The park's further additions include Bepo's appearance by the entry to the Tongari stage, a winter version of the Korabopuri machine, and special edition winter goods in the shops. Entry to the One Piece Tower is 3,200 yen (US$30.78) at the door or 3,000 yen (28.86) in advance for adults, 2,700 yen (US$25.97) or 2,600 yen (US$25.01) for middle or high school students, and 1,600 yen (US$15.39) or 1,500 yen (US$14.43) for children.
Tokyo One Piece opened last year as the anime's first large theme park. The park boasts a full experience from attractions and live shows to restaurants and original goods shops.
