The election of Japan as the first international destination of the Mickey Mouse complexes is related to the interest in demonstrating the possibilities of influence of American capitalism, especially considering that it was inaugurated in 1983, at a time where the greatest tensions between states were lived United and the Soviet Union.
This complex is divided into seven sectors: Bazaar World, Adventureland, Westernland, Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, and the mini sectors of Criteer’s Country and Toontown of Mickey.
