Inside the Warner Bros. Studio Tour Tokyo – The Making of Harry Potter

On June 16, 2023, the world's largest indoor Harry Potter attraction, officially named Warner Bros. Studio Tour Tokyo – The Making of Harry Potter, opened, allowing fans to explore Harry Potter's magical world in the country's capital.
The Harry Potter Studio Tour Tokyo was built on the site of the former Toshimaen amusement park in Tokyo's Nerima Ward.
Japan already has a Harry Potter theme park at Universal Studios Japan in Osaka. The Studio Tour in Tokyo, however, is more of an exhibition showcasing the behind-the-scenes of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts movies.

Enter the wizarding world at Harry Potter themed stations

How to get there

The Studio Tour Tokyo has a parking lot available to ticket holders. If you plan to travel by car or motorcycle, you will need to reserve a parking space in advance for 1,800 yen. There is also free bicycle parking. But taking a train may be the most convenient and exciting way to experience the tour.

The nearest station is Toshimaen Station on the Toei Oedo line or the Seibu Ikebukuro line.
It is highly recommended that you check out the two themed stations.

Toshimaen Station on the Seibu Line and Ikebukuro Station have been decorated to reflect the world of Harry Potter. Seibu Toshimaen Station has been made to resemble Hogsmeade Station, the train station closest to Hogwarts in the Harry Potter world. Ikebukuro Station, where passengers get on the Seibu Ikebukuro line toward Toshimaen Station, has been decorated to resemble King's Cross, the iconic real-life station where Harry Potter characters get on the fictional Hogwarts Express train to get to school. The two stations now feature motifs and decorations inspired by the Harry Potter movies.

Step inside Diagon Alley, magic around every corner

Harry Potter Studio Tour Tokyo has many breathtaking movie sets, including the iconic Diagon Alley. In the Harry Potter movie series, Diagon Alley is a shopping street for residents of the magical world. Its stores sell items such as potions, books, and flying broomsticks. For the Studio Tour Tokyo, the Diagon Alley movie set has been rebuilt using the same techniques as the original set, with crew members who worked on the movies.

You can see Ollivander's, the store where Harry Potter buys his first wand, or Quality Quidditch Supplies, which displays magical brooms. There are recreations of Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes, a magical joke shop; and Flourish and Blotts, a bookstore. At the end of Diagon Alley is Gringotts, the bank where wizards and witches keep their money. Stroll along Diagon Alley and take pictures at your favorite stores.

Other sets featured on the studio tour include the Great Hall at Hogwarts School, where students gather for meals; the Forbidden Forest, which Hogwarts students avoid because of the dangerous creatures living there; and the London Ministry of Magic, the government headquarters for the British magical community. The London Ministry of Magic set is exclusive to the Studio Tour Tokyo. You can take videos in the massive fireplaces where ministry employees magically arrive at work, complete with smoke and lights.

Enjoy wizarding meals at restaurants and cafes

The Studio Tour features several restaurants and cafes where you can enjoy food, drinks, and snacks inspired by Harry Potter and British cuisine.

If you're hungry for a meal, head to the Food Hall near the entrance. Or you can stop by the Backlot Cafe midway through the tour. The Backlot Cafe offers hot food and meal sets that are themed to the four Hogwarts houses. The Backlot Cafe also has drinks that change color and taste.

In the center of the Backlot Cafe's tables, you can find Professor Umbridge's Afternoon Tea, a treat available only at the Studio Tour Tokyo. The tour doesn't offer advance tickets for the Afternoon Tea, and only a certain number of slots are available at any given time. Take the chance to enjoy English-style afternoon tea, scones, and other baked goods.

Another option for snacks is the Frog Cafe, inspired by the chocolate frogs that Harry and his friends eat. Located near the entrance of the tour, the cafe sells coffee, cupcakes, and donuts.

Finally, the Studio Tour Tokyo also hosts the world's largest Butterbeer Bar. You can enjoy non-alcoholic Butterbeer, the popular drink from the Harry Potter books and movies.

Discover exclusive merchandise at the studio tour gift store

Harry Potter fans have many options for souvenirs. The Studio Tour includes two gift stores: the Studio Shop and the Railway Shop. Both stores are only accessible to ticket holders.

The Studio Shop is the main gift store and offers a wide variety of Harry Potter-related merchandise, some of which is exclusive to Tokyo. The shop sells clothing, mugs, art prints, and other souvenirs. You can buy a stuffed animal modeled after a magical creature or take home your very own wand.
The second gift store, the Railway Shop, is located near the set for Platform 9 3/4 and the Hogwarts Express. In the Harry Potter stories, Platform 9 3/4 is the train platform at King's Cross station where students get on the Hogwarts Express, the train that takes them to school. At the Railway Shop, you can buy products that feature this famous train. They include clothes, bags, artwork, and more.

Of course, the tour also offers many souvenirs in the form of photo and video opportunities. The sets, costumes, and behind-the scenes displays are open to photography. And you can enter the magical world yourself because of the tour's green screen areas. You'll be able to bring home a photo or video of yourself riding a broomstick, watching a game of Quidditch, or standing in a Hogwarts moving portrait.
