Namco Namjatown information
A complex of four buildings east of the station, Sunshine City is visited by shoppers and for Namco Namjatown . The main activities are carnival-style rides and attractions. Foodies will prefer the food ‘theme parks’ dedicated to adventures in gyoza (pan-fried dumplings), ice cream and desserts, and the rest can escape to the ‘healing forest’ for massage. The passport gets you into Namjatown as well as most of the attractions, though some still cost extra, as do food and treatments. Check the website or the Namjatown map for attractions that don’t require knowledge of Japanese.
