Toei Kyoto Studio Park

Toei Eigamura is a film set and theme park in Kyoto, obviously I had to take a look ...

It's nothing on the scale of say Disneyland or Universal Studios ... but you don't get the queues either. It has a ninja house, an old theatre, a replica edo-period village film set, and an anime museum. They actually still shoot period dramas there too.


The replica Edo-period village ...
