KANEFUKU Mentai Park Oarai

Japan’s first and only mentaiko themed amusement park, powered by the beloved mentaiko brand “Kanefuku”.

Themeparks

Japan’s one and only themepark dedicated solely to mentaiko! It’s run by “Kanefuku” the veteran mentaiko maker based in Oarai Town in Higashi Ibaraki-gun, Ibaraki Prefecture.

Inside the park you’ll find the mentaiko factory which produces as much as 5 TONS of mentaiko in a single day, available for you to tour and explore for free! With learning corners that show you how mentaiko products are made, a food court with mentaiko specialties to try, a mentaiko gallery to explore and more, there are countless ways to see, eat and play in this mentaiko world. After checking out all the thrills of mentaiko, head over to the sales corner for a fresh batch. You'll even find an array of mentaiko flavored snacks and seasonings to shop.

The Oarai area is home to “AquaWorld”, “Hitachi Seaside Park” and other hot destinations, making it especially easily to include a stop at Mentai Park Oarai during your next visit.

For an extra plus, Mentai Park has locations across Japan, including three more in Tokoname (Aichi Pref.), Kobe (Hyogo Pref.) and Izu (Shizuoka Pref.). Two new locations are set to open in Yasu (Shiga Pref.) in Winter 2021, and in Kanra (Gunma Pref.) Spring 2022.
