Toei Uzumasa Movie Village4.3
Toei Uzumasa Movie Village, also know as Kyoto Studio Park or Movie Land, offers some re-creations of Edo-period street scenes. This is an all-in-one touristy spot combining theme parks, period film sets and museums. You may even see a real TV production taking place before your eyes.
Visitors are given the opportunity to step back in time and experience Edo-era Japan. Costume rental is available to become a Samurai or Geisha, and the best part of it is you can stroll through the themed park to surprise your families and friends !
There are many different attractions and performances throughout the year, such as a very scary haunted house and a maze-like Ninja mansion adventure. If you have kids who are becoming sick of temples and shrines, this is a good place to spend a day.

I recommend this place if you like “Power rangers” and Japanese movies in general.
You can rent a samurai or a ninja costume and go around the scenes where famous movies were/are filmed.
Renting is quite expensive, but it’s worthy. The best samurai armor costume is around 11K¥ for the whole day, but you will look epic in it :).

Very nice Place to explore Japanese traditional buildings and life style. To take photos and rent a custom and walk around. Not so crowded and highly recommended

What a great place to visit!
This is a working studio, so parts of the studio were inaccessible due to filming.
The street shows, and ninja show were excellent, even though I don't speak Japanese, the story line was easy enough to follow, and the stage combat was outstanding!

Much was under construction or possibly reconstruction after a recent typhoon but it was still a fun place to visit if you're a fan of Japanese period films. You feel like you're actually in one. Especially with the performances out in the "streets".
Several of the experiences required an extra payment so that loses it a few points but the initial ticket fare is low and the stuff available to experience and see for free is still enjoyable.

Expensive with limited attractions. Adult tickets were ¥2200 and you had to pay ¥500 extra per attraction inside too. Most of the interesting events are during the weekends only too so avoid going on weekdays to get the most out of your ticket.
The Ninja Show was pretty enjoyable however and there's always limited time events too (Gintama earlier this year and Touken Ranbu going on right now). There's plenty of toilets around as well as places to eat at a reasonable price. A good place for children however I won't be going again.
