The Japanese sure love their robots, and those who have an absolute love for the Mobile Suit Gundam anime series (there are also tons of Gundam toys for you to blow your savings on if you are interested) might want to check out the upcoming Gundam Theme Park which is set to open in Odaiba, Japan, this coming April 19. Bandai Co. says that the new theme park will be called Gundam Front Tokyo, sporting a huge dome-shaped screen that shows off different images of Gundam. For those who are not in the loop, Gundam is a fighting robot in the hugely popular series, so much so that it even inspired a fake Gundam robot in an amusement park in China. At the Gundam Front Tokyo theme park, you will find rare documents which are related to the series’ production paraded to satisfy your appetite for all things Gundam. This will not be an outdoor theme park, as it is located on the 7th floor of a new shopping complex, known as DiverCity Tokyo Plaza. If you are going to be in the neighborhood this April 19, then you might want to give this theme park a visit. It should not be too hard to miss, considering how a massive, 18-meter statue of Gundam will stand ‘guard’ outside the complex.
