Fun despite the Ranking

No matter what the Ranking is, I had lotsa fun at this place. Honestly a kid would love this kid much more but I didn't regret coming here. Full of Awesomeness.

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

This is a samurai movie studio park, not like Universal Studios at all. We took the San-In line toward Sonobe from Kyoto Station and got off at Hanazono station, then walked about 4 blocks. We could have gone to the next station, but it would still be about 4 blocks. Going back to Kyoto Station, we took the #73 bus... More

I came here knowing that this place was intended for kids, but i still went anyway. I had fun at the recreated sets of old japan, the old samurai show, the ninja show. I was surprised that the place was like a carnival where you had to pay extra money like for stalls to win prizes, and the other attractions... More

This studio park is one-of-a-kind in Kyoto where you get to dress up as a samurai, have lots of fun watching Samurai shows/behind the scenes etc. However, do prepared to pay a little more (entrance fee: 2200 yen, each station is 500 yen) so you might want to spend more time here.

At 22 bucks a person for the entrance, it's important you get your money's worth by staying a while and watching some shows. There are other attractions (like a rather entertaining Ninja Mystery House), but these all cost an extra 5 bucks or so to get into. It would be a fun place with other people who are excited about...

Toei Kyoto Studio, commonly known Eigamura, is not only a theme park of movie, but also a movie studio, which is still in use. The entrance fee ($22) is in my opinion a little bit expensive. It is however a nice place for your kids.

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.
