One of the oldest and most beloved theme parks in Tokyo, Toshimaen will be closing its door in late August 2020 after 94 years, which is pretty sad news for Tokyo residents, but something really exciting is coming along.
Since the closure announcement early this year, there has been a lot of talks in the past few months about what could be taking its place after and it’s been rumored to be a brand new Harry Potter theme park.
In mid August, the public announcement has finally made. Yes, it’s official. The permanent Harry Potter Studio Tour Tokyo will be opening in 2023 at the former site of Toshimaen.
The world’s second Harry Potter Studio Tour after London, Warner Bros. Studio Tour Tokyo — The Making of Harry Potter will be a large scale, immersive facility, recreating the world of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films.
At the Studio Tour Tokyo, visitors can experience the fascinating world of Harry Potter by exploring the iconic film sets which were actually designed and produced by the creators of the film series.
The facility will be approx 30,000 square meters, and the exhibition space including indoor soundstage and outdoor backlot areas, and it will take about half a day to explore the whole exhibition space.
The brand new Harry Potter theme park will be opening in Tokyo after 3 years from now, but we already know that it will be super popular and busy once it’s open. But the good thing is that the site is planning to adjust the number of admission tickets so that visitors can have the best experience without massive crowds.
Also, in the space in front of the park’s entrance, there will be a landscaping area with sculptures of magical creatures appearing on the films that both locals and visitors can freely enjoy. Towards the opening scheduled for the first half of 2023, the organizer will start building the Harry Potter Studio Tour Tokyo soon!
This is what we know so far about the new Harry Potter Studio Tour Tokyo, opening in 2023, but we will be updating you as soon as the new information arrives, so please stay tuned!
