It was a very fun day here at Toei Kyoto Studio Park!
As our Japanese guests already know, we organize every day guided tours in the Park for the joy of kids and adults. After all, when you are guided by a very cool actor dressed up as a citizen of old Japan almost thinking he traveled from the past to be there… who wouldn’t be excited to join him for a walk around?
Explaining not only how wigs are made, how expensive they are, how buildings are reconstructed to meet the needs of movie directors, how the ground and soil are modified to describe different time periods, or the correct way of running or walking for samurai, as well as many secrets you would never notice just by watching a TV drama from your sofa, the guide explained in detail the “how it is made” of movies, in an incredibly entertaining and fun way. You will understand how TOEI Kyoto Studio Park is indeed one of the most famous facilities for old Japanese drama shooting!
But here is the good news! TOEI Kyoto Studio Park decided to take a step further, and from June, this very popular event will see the introduction of the English language as well, where a foreign interpreter will follow the main guide for the whole time, translating for our foreign visitors all they need to know to fully enjoy this event.
