A new entertainment destination is to be constructed in Yokohama, Japan.

Yokohama Park

The 514,000sq.m park, roughly the same size as Tokyo Disneyland, wil be built by Tokyo-based developer Mitsubishi Estate on the site of a former US communications facility.

It will be based around famous Japanese culture such as anime, manga and video games.

Scheduled to open in 2031, the company says it hopes to attract more than 15 million visitors each year.

A new transport system is also being considered by the Yokohama Municipal Government to improve access.
