Westernland – Tokyo Disneyland

Posted on
The word “frontier” does not translate adequately into Japanese so the name Westernland was used in Tokyo Disneyland to describe the American West. For me, the name “Westernland” is a lot easier to accept than Main Street being called World Bazaar. When entering Westernland from Adventureland, the transition is smooth enough. But the division between … Continue reading "Westernland – Tokyo Disneyland"
