The announcement was made by Warner Bros. Studio Japan, an affiliate of the major American film company, based in Minato Ward, Tokyo.
The attraction is under construction in Nerima Ward, on the grounds of the old Toshimaen amusement park, which closed its doors in 2020. It will be the second of its kind in the world, following London, and the first in Asia.
At Warner Bros Studio Tour Tokyo — The Making of Harry Potter, visitors will be able to experience the world of cinema by walking through recreated film sets, which include costumes and props, just like the ones used in the films. Visitors must book in advance.
The Harry Potter Studio in London has entertained more than 16 million people since it opened 10 years ago, and it’s still difficult to make a reservation.
Ticket bookings have already begun on 22 March for tickets up to 30 September. The booking page was even crowded with over 90,000 people waiting to book during the first 10 minutes after the booking began.
