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.

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.

Very fun. I went with my little brother who was eight at the time and he had a blast dressing up as a ninja.

So much to do and see at a great price, especially if you go with a group of people. Personally recommend the lazer maze, haunted house, and ninja show.

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!
