Tokyo Is Getting A New Harry Potter Attraction

Luckily, for those of us who are still bummed out that they've never received a Hogwarts acceptance letter, there are so many ways to enjoy the wizarding world of Harry Potter. And it seems as though the magic is continuing to spread across the world with a new Harry Potter attraction making its way to Tokyo!

Harry Potter In Japan

While it’s no secret that J.K Rowling’s Harry Potter book series – and the subsequent movie series – is extremely popular across the globe, there’s no doubt that it’s one of the most popular franchises Japan has ever seen. Because of this, it was a no-brainer when these business mega-minds came together to rework an old theme park in Tokyo. They knew exactly what to fill it with.

Adding To The Family

While there is already the Universal Studios Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Osaka, this new Harry Potter attraction will be a little different. It will be built on top of the once-popular Toshimaen amusement park that’s been standing proud for over 100 years and will be called the Studio Tour Tokyo – Making of Harry Potter. The experience will give viewers more of an insight into the making of the movies.

A Similar Attraction

Any Potterhead who has been to London will know that the UK is home to a very similar attraction – and it’s done pretty well for itself over the years. This Studio Tour will take you behind the scenes of the movies, allow you to check out the film sets, see the costumes, and stare at sculptures of some of your favorite characters. The new attraction is set to open in 2023.
