No reason seems to have been given. Considering how big Japan’s current tourist boom is, it’s surprising to see a manga-themed attraction like this shutdown. Maybe it would’ve worked better as an outdoor, large-scale theme park?

Wait, were there specific reasons why it shut down?? As in, what factors kept them from making ends meet? Feels like something like this should’ve been at least breaking even.

Shame, I totally would have loved to have gotten a photo at the Yamcha death crater.
