Spicy fish egg theme park operator Kanefuku opens 6th location in Gunma Prefecture
Fukuoka-based spicy pollock roe mentaiko producer and theme park operator Kanefuku has opened its sixth location, Mentai Park Gunma.
Kanefuku currently draws in over one million visitors annually at Kanefuku's Mentai Park Oarai, Mentai Park Tokoname, Mentai Park Kobe Mita, Mentai Park Izu, and Mentai Park Biwako.
Like its predecessors, Mentai Park Gunma offers fun for all ages in the form of mentaiko and nothing else.
The first floor welcomes visitors, who are greeted by the esteemed Dr. Tarakon, who discusses the history and other amusing facts about spicy cod roe in the red polka-dot filled corridors of Tsubu-Tsubu Land.
This part contains interactive exhibits as well as a window that views directly into a real mentaiko packing room, allowing you to see how it is weighed, sorted, and packed. As a result, it is possible to get mentaiko of the highest possible quality, as it is purchased directly from the factory and does not require freezing.
Other mentaiko-flavored dishes, including mentaiko dumplings, mentaiko rice balls, mentaiko pasta, mentaiko chili oil, and even mentaiko ice cream, are available for purchase at factory-direct pricing.
These dishes can be enjoyed in the second-floor dining room, which also has a children's play area. While the kids enjoy the Tarapiyo Jumbo Slide, trampoline, and climbing wall, parents may unwind with a spicy fish-flavored ice cream cone.
