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.

Disappointing, not worth the entrance fee by any means. You can see almost the same scenery elsewhere in Kyoto for free and get better cheaper food as well. The attractions were not worth mentioning. Only for kids it might be worth to go there for 30 minutes

The theme park is not as crowded as others so my friends and I were able to explore the venue and the activities they offer to our heart's content. Im amazed with the place especially the horror house - which is 100% scary! Staff are lovely, they're so friendly and you can also take pictures with the ones in costume.

This park used to be Japanese film / drama sets. You can enjoy taking photos at the surrounding of period buildings. During certain time, there will be some shows on the streets. A lot of attraction in it, like Haunted House, Ninja Mystery House, Maze House, etc but each attraction the admission fees of about 500 yen, a bit pricey. You may buy a coupon of about 1,600 yen, and you can visit maximum four attraction places.

I've spent a lot of time in Japan and this is by far one of the most fun places I've been to here. If you have any level of interest in medieval Japan you'll enjoy walking through this well-done mockup village and taking photos with the dressed-up staff. The scheduled events are a lot of fun too. If you go on a weekday it's not so crowded so you'll be able to participate in pretty much all the swordplay events, which are especially fun because the staff actors really get into it.
The signage usually includes English translations and they've also got a capable interpreter on staff who will join you for the tours/participatory events and translate live.
If you've had your fill of shrines and temples, this is a great way to round out your Kyoto experience.

The daily Ninja show is really really good and it is recommended to see (free of charge). There are only 3 shows every day. This ninja show is magnificent, and combines 3D body mapping and action. Actors are all amazing!
