Ise Azuchimomoyama Bunkamura, a theme park in Ise, Mie Prefecture, that showcases traditional Japanese buildings and customs, is working on increasing the number of foreign visitors ahead of the Group of Seven summit in May.

The region will be in the spotlight when the G-7 event takes place in the Ise-Shima region in May, and park officials say they are eager to make use of the rare opportunity to promote Japanese culture and history to as many non-Japanese as possible.

The park is located on a mountain in the eastern part of the city, reproducing the image of a town in the Azuchi-Momoyama Period at the foot of a 43-meter-high symbolic replica of Azuchi Castle. Visitors can see actors dressed in samurai and princess outfits walking down the streets as well as enacting ninja fighting sequences.
