If you are looking for a break from Kyoto's temples and shrines, this park could suit you. well. If you go along expecting it to be like Disney or Universal Studios you will be sorely disappointed. But if you go along with your mind open you will have a great time. The park is located only a 15 minute train... More

The Studio Park is pretty much like a theme park or carnival on Japanese traditional culture where one can see ninja shows, ride (or sit) or feed a horse and pony, and appreciate how the traditional Japanese movies are being made. It is largely targeted at families with young children (between 4 to 12 year olds) where the children can... More

This park brought us back to the edo period. The buildings, the attendants with costumes, unlimited shows on the street and in varies theather.. all come together perfectly and brings us the sweet memory. This park is a gems that should not be missed, especially when you are a big kid like me !

The general admission ticket price can be paid by credit card. However the special attraction admission tickets (Haunted House, Ninja Mystery Maze, 3D Maze etc) only accepts cash. Even their special discounted attraction coupon (4 attractions for Y1600) is cash only. The theme park has no currency exchange counter. We visited early on a weekday and there were only a... More

Interesting place to visit especially for those who are interested at ninja and friends stories. Fun for kids. Soft ice cream is Y100 more expensive than outside.

There isn't much to enjoy there. The entrance fee is quite expensive. 2200 yen per adult. Need to pay if want to participate in certain activities like the amazing maze which is not so amazing after all. It cost 500 yen per adult. The shows are in Japanese and can't enjoy them as do not understand them. Seen the actors... More

This studio park is built to look like a village of Edo period. It consists of traditional buildings and equipment which are used to shoot movies and television dramas. There are also several other attractions and amusements including ninja performances, a ninja maze, 3D theater, and a haunted house. You can also dress in traditional Japanese costumes and get photographs.... More

Staying in Western Kyoto

Neighbourhood Profile
Western Kyoto
Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature lovers to hiking trails and botanical walks. The area's famously tall bamboo groves, monkey park, and impressive vistas during the Hanami cherry blossom viewing season mean that it is busiest in warmer months, though also gorgeous in the fall, when the mountains and hills along the banks turn multi-colored. Historic and engaging, even the rail cars in Western Kyoto seek to exemplify its traditional nature and scenic beauty. Many people, including natives, come to visit the 1,200 rakan statues at the Otagi Nenbutsuji Temple, which is still in use as a religious site.
