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.

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.

An unexpectedly fun trip! A bit pricey ~$20/adult but worth it, especially if you have kids who aren't interested in the nature Kyoto has to offer. A bit like Warner Brothers Studios - you can see authentic sets used for old Japanese movies. (We even got to see actors in full get-up!) Plus, there are a lot of souvenir shops, food stalls & other exhibits available. Best if you have kids - but we had a blast as adults anyway!

A great surprise. I didn't intend to go here, because I am not familiar with alot of their work. I was wrong! Live action shows with ninja and samurai fighting just feet away from you, wonderful staff and plenty to do. It really is a great place to visit. Especially for kids.

Nice place to see and learn how Japan used to look like. Its actually used for filming movies, and if you were lucky you can see that. There are many attractions too. Overall you should visit here at least once.

Check the times on the schedule of events in the park. Don't miss the Ninja House. Leisurely fun for kids. Not much but not crowded.
