The park features themed zones such as Ice Cream City and Gyoza Stadium, celebrating Japan’s love for unique flavors and regional delicacies.

Namja Town’s attractions include traditional carnival games, a haunted house, and interactive experiences. Visitors can also enjoy dessert lanes and churro shops. Opened in 1996 on the second floor of Sunshine City, Namja Town has secured its place as a distinctive part of the complex, which also hosts the Sky Circus observatory and Ancient Orient Museum.
