Don’t worry, “One Piece” isn’t going anywhere. In fact, it’s been getting so popular that it’s probably here to stay forever –– at least as far as Tokyo Tower is concerned. But if you haven’t yet had the chance to see the Tower’s original “One Piece Live Attraction – Welcome to Tongari Mystery Tour” show, now is your time.

Tokyo Tower, the operator of “Tokyo One Piece Tower,” Japan’s only theme park dedicated to the popular “One Piece” animation series, is bidding a farewell to its enormously popular current spectacle and upgrading it into an even more interactive show starting from April 23.

Ahead of the launch of the new show, however, visitors to the park are given one last chance to enjoy the current performance with a special farewell promotion running until April 10. Apart from watching (and rewatching) the show, fans will also be granted the special chance to snap a photo in the company of all Straw Hat Crew members, namely Monkey D. Luffy, Roronoa Zoro, Nami, Usopp, Sanji, Nico Robin, Franky, Brook and the tiny Tony Tony Chopper.

What’s even better is that you can take the photo back home as a memento of the special encounter, printed on an A4 or A5-sized limited-edition paper (or photo frame) that is also illustrated with glimpses from the story — for a charge of ¥2,000 onwards depending on your choice. Enthusiastic devotees who wish to see the show more than once on their visit to the Tower can also purchase the limited edition “Live Repeater Ticket” for additional ¥500.

The “One Piece Live Attraction – Welcome to Tongari Mystery Tour” show is a 15-minute-long powerful stage combining dancing, singing, acting and thrilling stage effects, featuring live actors playing the roles of the Straw Hat Crew, accompanied by the voice actors’ recorded voices and amazing projection-mapping. Set in a dark and mysterious cave, the story evolves around the characters being unexpectedly trapped, but manage to escape in a happy ending with the help of the audience, who hold the key to their rescue in a secret spell –– and a special stone. With the crew sanding right in front of the audience, the show is truly entertaining for fans and newbies to the story alike. A perfect outing with the kids, as well.

“One Piece,” the hugely popular pirate adventure manga written and drawn by Eiichiro Oda in July 1997, entered the Guinness World Records as the most printed manga ever in June 2015. Tokyo One Piece Tower opened on March 13, 2015 and celebrated the 2,000th performance of the show last December amid a full room of cheering fans.
