Nagashima Spa Land
Come for the roller coasters, stay for the spa.
- Nagashima Zombie Island Dates: The zombie rave goes down in the party dome every Saturday and Sunday of October.
- 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. (3:30 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 20)
The theme park, located on the isle of Nagashima near Kuwana City in Mie Prefecture, offers a lot to do and see that makes it worth the trip. The park is part of the “Nagashima Resort,” which has four main areas besides the spa land and amusement park. It also has an outlet shopping mall, a museum and amusement park dedicated to beloved children’s anime character Anpanman, and a flower park called “Nabana no Sato.”
Ever wanted to have a dance party with zombies? You can do just that during the month of October when the park becomes ‘Nagashima Zombie Island.’
The amusement park is perfect for both adults and kids. With more than 50 rides, it boasts over 10 major roller coasters that will leave you screaming for more. Take the Steel Dragon 2000, for example. The gigantic roller coaster ride which spans the entire length of the park and will take you upside down.
After screaming your lungs out, take a relaxing ride on the Aurora Wheel, a giant Ferris wheel standing 90 meters high. And for the kids, try attractions in the aptly named “Kids Town.”

Ever wanted to have a dance party with zombies? You can do just that during the month of October when the park becomes “Nagashima Zombie Island.” Try to find all the “rare zombies” and snap their pics for the gram, dress up as a zombie yourself and dance with the undead in the “party dome” for Halloween.
For Christmas, the park hosts one of Japan’s biggest winter illumination “Nabano no Sato” with a shimmering tunnel of 700,000 sparkling LED lights.
Hop on over to the water park, “Joyful Waterpark,” to cool off in the summer. With more than 15 different pools and slides, it’ll take the edge off. The waterpark has a jumbo ocean water pool, plus a lazy river, family pool and children’s area.
Again, for those thrill seekers, try any of the 9-plus major water slides, including the sliding into steep tunnels during the “boomerang twist.” (Note: People with tattoos are not permitted into the water areas).
Just around the corner is “Yuami no Shima” hot spring area. It has 17 kinds of unique outdoor and indoor baths. For those looking to get into the relaxing nature of Japan without actually making the hike out there, try an array of outdoor baths. Several of the baths have recreated iconic spots in Japan like Kurobe Gorge in Toyama Prefecture and Oirase Stream in Aomori Prefecture.
Like any great spa, visitors can also try out hot tubs, saunas, massage services and restaurants.
While the park can get crowded, there is a lot of space to rest. Nagashima Spa Land really has the best of all worlds and is located conveniently outside the major city of Nagoya.
