The mini theme park is a popular place for weddings and has restaurants, a small zoo, a butterfly park and, of course, a souvenir shop. The statues, which were made in the 1990s, are exact replicas of the originals and were built under supervision of Japanese archaeologists.

The Nichinan coastline is known for its stunning views of the sea.
