    Gunma Pref. Kitagunmagunyoshiokamachi Kaminoda 2145
    This private theme park in Yoshioka Town, Kita Gunma County, Gunma Prefecture features an old-fashioned candy store street. There are also a variety of other areas like an antique toy and doll museum, a classic car museum, a teddy bear museum, and a squirrel park. Visitors pour in from around the country. From children to seniors, there’s something for everyone.

    The museum is quite ‘wild and whacky’ as you enter. The proprietor clearly has a sense of fun. The toy and doll sections are interesting but my main reason for visiting was the classic Japanese car...
