New Nature-Inspired “JUNGLIA” Theme Park Set to Open in Okinawa


JUNGLIA,” a nature-inspired theme park, is set to debut in Okinawa in 2025. Katana, an Osaka-based marketing company, revealed its plans for the new park located in the northern Okinawa Prefecture at a press conference on Monday 27th November.

Utilizing the region’s lush forests, the park is poised to encompass the expanse of a former golf course, stretching from Nakijin village to Nago city. Backed by a 70 billion yen investment from local businesses, the company intends to draw in global tourists by providing jungle zipline adventures, dinosaur attractions, balloon rides, and a spa experience.

Development on JUNGLIA commenced in February 2023. Encompassing 60 hectares, the park will be focused on the UNESCO World Nature Heritage-designated ‘Yambaru’ subtropical forest in Okinawa Prefecture, equivalent in size to Universal Studios Japan. Positioned strategically, the park aims to tap into the growing inbound tourist demand, leveraging the proximity of Okinawa—Japan’s southernmost prefecture—to China and Southeast Asia.

Katana unveiled concept artwork and a preview video, spotlighting the lush landscapes of the Okinawa area. Alongside this reveal, the company disclosed intentions to develop a park featuring anime and diverse content on an adjacent site.
