Toei Hero World Namco Action Museum closed on Sunday, January 15, 2017.

Toei Hero World was a popular indoor museum in Japan for Toei’s past and current tokusatsu characters. It originally opened in December 2013 and was located in Chiba, Japan. The museum not only featured tokusatsu memorabilia, but also had interactive play areas and character meet-and-greet sessions.

The last hero greeting included Kamen Rider Ex-Aid (Level 2), Kamen Rider Black, Kamen Rider Gaim (Kachidoki Arms), Kamen Rider Zangetsu, Kamen Rider Drive (Type Tridoron Drive), and Zyuoh Eagle of Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger.

On a news post on their website and Twitter account, Toei Hero World thanked fans:

Toei Hero World closed on Sunday, January 15, 2017. It was the last day of our three year business term. Thank you so much for visiting. We would like to express our gratitude to you all and thank you for your patronage.

Fan reaction on Twitter was positive, as noted by the post’s replies. Many thanked Toei Hero World and their staff for their hard work, and also of their fond memories of their visits to the museum.
