Get a First-hand Glimpse of Japanese Film Industry
The majority of Japanese samurai movies and historical dramas are filmed right here in Kyoto at Toei Uzumasa Eigamura. Lined with traditional Japanese buildings and streets, the movie sets bring ancient Kyoto back to life. Actors dressed as geishas draped in elegant kimonos or courageous samurai warriors can be seen when filming is taking place.
Various performances such as a ninja show and other attractions including a haunted house are also within the park. Visitors can even choose to dress up from over 30 different attire including a samurai, geisha, or ninja. If you're a film buff or have kids, be sure to visit Toei Uzumasa Eigamura to get a first hand glimpse at the Japanese film industry.
The Toei Eigamura is just a 5 minute walk from Uzumasa Station on the Keifuku Arashiyama Line or a 15 minute walk from JR Hanazono Station (10 minutes, 190 Yen from Kyoto Station).
