Pasona Group Inc., a major staffing agency, announced on Monday that anime theme park will open on Hyogo prefecture's Awaji Island in July.

Nijigennomori Park (literally 2D Forest Park) will have a section dedicated to Osamu Tezuka's Phoenix that comes to life at night and an athletic course based on Crayon Shin-chan. The project heads are expecting close to one million visitors per year after the park opens.
