About
Toei Studios Kyoto (TSK) was established in 1926 as the Uzumasa Studio of Bantsuma Production and is the most traditional business of Toei. Due to its history, people often relate TSK to period dramas, and many other companies still visit seeking our expertise in period-drama creation for their productions. However, TSK has been noted for high production capabilities regardless of genres. The venue is not often open to the public except for this experience.

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

Hi! Visitor from Hawaii. It’s been a while since I did this but it has remained a lasting fun memory, so I felt guilty for never having written a review. Even though I was by myself for my reservation everyone was very courteous and forgiving of my shyness. I had fun throwing ninja stars! I’m a fan of Sentai and even got a cute little figure keychain. I laugh when I think about the experience. Outside of my comfort zone but I enjoyed it. A fun cultural experience.

I went there with my friend who also love Samurai movies and sword fights. We ended up learning a lot about Samurai more than we expected.

They taught us Samurai history, value and their way of life. I also learned that Harakiri was not a brutal act but an honourable act that took a lot of courage and determination. People were helpful and professional, I even felt like being one as we participated in the sword fight which is the climax of this class.

Highly recommended for all the Samurai enthusiasts!

I went with some friends, really not expecting much, but i was pleasantly surprised! It's been really fun to dress up, learling some moves and the reenacting them for the video. The people there were very kind and patient, even if i did many mistakes. I really recommend it to everyone who has the chance to go to Kyoto.

I took part of this class with my friends and I was very surprised by the great competence of the actors.
They explained everything we had to know and we had a lot of fun at the end of the training.
It's a peculiar and highly recommended experience!
