Japan: Day 6 Part 1- Kyoto Studio Park (Toei Uzumasa Eigamura)

Just started my term 2 holidays, so it's back to my posts on Japan!
So on my 6th day in Japan, Emma decided to take us to some 'fun' place, I had no idea what she meant as fun until we arrived at Toei Kyoto Studio Park which is a film set and theme park in one, and features a collection of replicas of traditional Japanese buildings which are used for historial movies and television dramas.

near the entrance were the props used in some recent historical movie

once you walked out of the entrance, you entered into the world of historical Japanese buildings


and we fought on top of a roof like ninjas with our roasted corn lol

my amazing ramen and ninja sword chopsticks
We also took photos in jidaigeki costumes, I chose to dress up as a maiko (apprentice geisha) and Emma chose to dress up as a queen, and the costume was so heavy with multiple layers and a head piece.
Then the 'fun' part came, it was the Ninja House which was filled with traps, and you had to find your way out!  Totally going to build a house like that one day haha, sadly there are no pictures of the Ninja House because cameras were restricted, however it was very similar to this video:

That's all for Toei Kyoto Studio Park, but only part 1 of day 6 because we later visited the Kinkakuji and Ginkakuji temples, so don't forget to read about it.
