We will hold a special event at the Studio Park for you to enjoy the coming of the New Year. In 2022, a giant commemorative panel representing illustrations of various Evangelion characters holding the symbol of the new year (the Tiger) will appear at the "Evangelion Kyoto Base", as well as the sale of new limited-edition goods.
The new year will see the arrival of a gorgeous Oiran lady who will liven up the mood, as well as old-fashioned games, such as Japanese battledore or spinning tops. We will hold many events to be enjoyed by families, and welcome you with nostalgic sceneries of old Japan during New Year celebrations, to make you feel like you have traveled back in time.
