Toei Uzumasa Eigamura

The Toei Uzumasa Eigamura (東映太秦映画村, Toei Uzumasa Eigamura; also known as Kyoto Studio Park or Movie Land) is a film set and theme park in one. It is made to look like a small town from the Edo Period. The park features a collection of various traditional buildings which are occasionally used as a backdrop for filming historical movies and television dramas. The park includes entire streets depicting town scenes, including a replica of the old Nihonbashi Bridge, a traditional court house, a Meiji Period police box and part of the Yoshiwara red light district. Actual filming takes place occasionally in various parts of the park, and visitors are welcome to observe the action. Eigamura has several attractions and amusements for guests to experience including ninja performances, a ninja maze, a 360 degree 3D theater, filming demonstrations, and a haunted house that is claimed to be one of the scariest in Japan. It is also possible to dress up in period dress and get photographed in more than 30 different attires. Guests may also rent period style costumes to wear as they enjoy the park.
