Sunmesse Nichinan, Nichinan

Visit the park of Sunmesse Nichinan to see reproductions of Moai sculptures from Easter Island against a vast ocean backdrop. The monoliths stand facing the green hills; touch the third one on the left for love, and the second on the right for fortune. Enter the building on site to see a collection of insects on the top floor, as well as a museum with background information on the island and Japan's role in its exploration. Head to the petting farm to meet ponies and goats, and try the swing on the steep slope for sweeping views. Shop for miniature handmade Moai statues in the souvenir shop, and enjoy a meal in the restaurant.

  • The thing with image showed the only copy in the world. Visited people less ideal Park explore!. People are afraid of walking because it is situated on the slopes may be unsuitable. If only the MOAI in is about 5-minute walk from the parking lot.

  • You can see the MOAI statues on Easter Island have to go. The MOAI statues seems to be Easter Island official. Better go on weekdays and holidays are very crowded, so people went during the week can be seen slowly. Nice views overlooking the MOAI statue outside a beautiful sea, is very good. Not just personally so long can be anywhere

  • I went to see the MOAI statues. And a little walk, by bus get off in Sun Messe nichinan was at the entrance of the Sun Messe nichinan. Like, paying admission 700 yen. Baggage staff at souvenir shops, visited the MOAI statues. Contrast of the sea and statue of was beautiful. Exhibit described Insectarium and MOAI and other facilities, is interesting in its own way.

  • Nice place to visit. 700 Japan yen for entry ticket, worth of it.
  • Except its famous Moai Replica Statue, this place also has a good insect museum.
  • Overpriced, grumpy staff and foreigners cannot rent the golf carts. Obviously the only reason to go is to get a photo with the Moai. Otherwise skip it.
  • Educational park. Have very fantastic ocean view.
  • Beautiful view especially when the sun is setting down. But there is quite expensive entrance 700Yen for just walking around. And also many people as well.
