Yomiuriland (よみうりランド, Yomiurirando) is an amusement park in Inagi, Tokyo, Japan that first opened in 1969.[1] It is situated on hillsides, and features rides such as roller coasters and water flumes. It is home to Yomiuri Giants Stadium, one of the training fields for the Yomiuri Giants baseball team, and was the primary training ground before Tokyo Dome was completed. It is operated and run by the Yomiuri Group, the parent of media conglomerate Yomiuri Shimbun. A bath house was constructed to attract more nude senior citizens.
