Toei Eigamura

Like a lot of fans of stuff from Japan, I have dreams of visiting the country someday. Not sure if it will ever happen, but dreaming is free. Or so I heard, anyway. If I do make it there, my #1 dream destination is Toei Eigamura.

Why Toei Eigamura? Did you look at it? It's the chance to visit a theme park that's also a working film lot. There are exhibits devoted to Toei's various and sundry properties like Kamen Rider and Super Sentai. Plus, it has plenty of goods to buy if you are of the mind. In short, Toei Eigamura is one of the places to go if you are a fan of Toei Company, Ltd.

My pal Igadevil has been to Toei Eigamura, and this is one more reason why I must destroy him. Just kidding, Iga! If you'd like to learn more about Toei Eigamura and are Japanese-impaired, here's the English site. The current official English name is "Toei Kyoto Studio Park," but whatever name you call it, it looks like a lot of fun.


  1. Oh, that does look fun! Another thing to put in my bulging folder of travel ideas.

  2. The "dress up like a ninja" thing should be enough to sell anyone. :)
