"Toei Uzumasa Eigamura (Kyoto Studio Park)" Toei Movie Village Tip by kevarms

Toei Movie Village, Kyoto: 7 reviews and 10 photos

Toei is one of Japan's most famous and oldest movie companies, best known for their production of samurai and superhero TV series and movies. Visitors here can see a combined theme park/museum with reconstructions of historic buildings from the Edo period as wells as various performances such as a Ninja fight. You may even see a real TV production taking place. The musuem will probably be of less interest to gaijin visitors but seems to give a quite comprehensive history of the movie business in Japan. It was quite fun to see the costumes of the 'Super Sentai' characters from a famous Japanese superhero show, adapted in the West as the 'Power Rangers'.

A good day out and a much needed respite for anybody who is feeling temple fatigue in Kyoto.
