Japan has a few dozen popular theme parks and amusement parks, including some world renowned brand names like Disneyland and Universal Studios. There are also a few parks unique to Japan, for example, Nikko Edomura, which is themed in a fun way after a town of the samurai era.

During the extravagant years of the bubble economy, many parks were built across Japan, several of which were forced to close again when the economy took a downturn. Those that remain in operation are the bigger and better received ones, usually with unique characters of their own. Below is a list of some of the best theme parks and amusement parks in Japan.
