Japan is easily the top travel destination for Filipino Potterheads; after all, Japan (specifically Osaka) is home to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios Japan. Soon though, another must-visit destination for Harry Potter fanatics will open in the country!
Warner Bros. has recently confirmed that it will be building the Warner Bros. Studio Tour Tokyo — The Making of Harry Potter. Specifically, ‘The Making of Harry Potter’ will be a massive permanent museum for all things Harry Potter!
How large? The complex will have a total size of around 30,000 square meters!
So what will you see inside this massive Harry Potter museum? For starters, it will have exhibits which feature actual props and costumes used in creating the Harry Potter film franchise; that includes both the Harry Potter main saga along with the Fantastic Beasts film series. Aside from exhibits, The Making of Harry Potter in Japan will also have set recreations from the Harry Potter films.
Given the expected demand of tickets when the complex opens, the Harry Potter Studio Tour Tokyo will feature a daily admission cap that’s likely similar to the system used in the Ghibli Museum. There are no details yet on how limited tickets will be though.
Warner Bros. Studio Tour Tokyo — The Making of Harry Potter is scheduled to open sometime in 2023, and it will be located in the site of the Toshimaen amusement park (which closes at the end of the month) in Nerima, Tokyo.
