Aichi, Japan (February 6, 2012) /BUSINESS WIRE/ — Gamagori Marine Development Co., Ltd., operator of the marine resort complex Laguna Gamagori – a marine resort complex where guests can enjoy the beauty of the sea – has announced specially planned events for Laguna Gamagori’s 10th year anniversary.

The premier feature is a special event for ‘Naruto’, which celebrates its 10th year anniversary as a television anime this year. This special event is scheduled to run for approximately one year commencing from March 17th, 2012. This joint venture with ‘Naruto’ is based on concepts of ‘love’, ‘growth’, and ‘compassion.’

The event title is: “NARUTO – Memories of Chakra in Lagunasia”, slated to run from Saturday, March 17th 2012 to Sunday, September 2nd, 2012.
