Toei Uzumasa Eigamura


Art & Leisure

Recommended Major venue


It’s Universal Studios with samurai but without the rides in this movie-set theme park from Toei, producer of Japanese period dramas and superhero shows. It even has a mechanical sea monster where the shark should be. The full-scale street sets depict a Japan of yore, but so does most of Kyoto itself. Nostalgia seekers will find more value elsewhere; children may see things differently.
