Who wouldn't want to visit Easter Island but are unable to visit that remote location? Well, you are in luck. The Japanese have their own statue of liberty, eiffel tower, dutch tulips in huis ten bosch, and why not Moai's just as well. This is something I just couldn't let pass, Moai heads while visiting Kyushu now let's see.. What??... More

Though this is a good place for taking pictures on a sunny day, the only attraction here are the Easter Island statue replicas. The rest is just so so. It does not worth the long drive unless time is not an issue.

Visited this spot last month. We were fortunate that the weather was great that day. Sunny blue sky. They claim that they have the only authenticated replica by Easter Island. Besides the statues, the place was huge and has quite some other spots to see. Can spend one day there easy. The restaurant inside the park was very good too.

This attraction is a replica of some Easter Island statues - there are nice scenic views from the area and the statues although imitation are impressive to see. Does not take more than 30 minutes to view the monuments. The attraction requires a fee but can not remember off hand how much it was.

This is a place related to a certain religion. Yes the view from the hills are very beautiful, but the weird Moai Statue just ruins the entire thing. Wouldn't go there again.

I do not have chance to visit Easter Island to see the true Moai, but I feel great to see those Moai in Sunmesse Nichinan. It is relaxing to walk around Sunmesse Nichinan. It does not only have Moai, but also have animal and other point of interests. The sea view is great, and it is fun to visit there.

Been to Easter Island what you have here celebrates the connection between Japan and Easter Island. They gave them crane(s) to re-erect the real ones in Easter Island. The UNESCO plaque thing talked about below is a display of other heritage sites of the world apart from Easter Island, not these tourist inspired stones. The real things are worth burning... More

While the Easter Island was too far for me to visit, these 5.5meters tall Moai statues official replicas satisfied my curiosity. 7 Moai standing by the roaring coastline was quite a scene. Tried the swings on the steep slope which gave a spectacular view of the scene. Making wishes: - touch 3rd one on left for love - touch 2nd... More

We spent 3-4 hours here, gazing at the wonder sights, scenery and soaking in the wonder cool weather. The park was bigger than I had expected with the famous Maui statues at one end and a huge playground on the slopes above it. It is a great place for families especially the kids to run around and enjoy what the... More
