Japan trip 10th day, Nov 21st - Toei Uzumasa Eigamura (Kyoto)

Initial plan we were going to Arashiyama to take Sagano Romantic Train unfortunately we missed the train schedule so we went to Toei Uzumasa Eigamura instead. 

However before we left, we tried local foods, Yakisoba (焼きそば = fried noodles) and Japanese Omelet with fried noodles.

While on the way to Toei Uzumasa Eigamura we saw a florist with very beautiful and colorful flowers.

Only in Japan, 25 hrs working hour

Finally we reached @ Toei Uzamasa Eigamura. 

[Introduction] The Toei Uzumasa Eigamura (also known as Kyoto Studio Park and Toei Movie Land) is a film set and theme park in one. It features a collection of replicas of traditional Japanese buildings which are used as setting for historical movies and television dramas.

There are whole streets depicting Edo Period town scenes, a replica of the old Nihonbashi Bridge, a traditional court house, a Meiji Period police box and part of the former Yoshiwara red light district. Actual film shooting takes place occasionally, and park visitors are welcome to observe the action.

Other attractions include various performances, a haunted house, a large souvenir shop and exhibitions about popular TV series. It is also possible to dress up and get photographed in more than 30 attires including samurai, geisha and ninja attires. The cost varies from 8500 to 16000 Yen depending on the attire.
