How to Get There
From Ikebukuro Station, hop aboard the Seibu Ikebukuro Line and take the train to Toshimaen Station, about 15 minutes away. The park is about a two-minute walk from the station. Studio Tour Tokyo can also be accessed via the Toei Oedo line to Toshimaen Station – it's only a 20-minute train ride from Shinjuku station and a two-minute walk from Toshimaen station.
Immerse yourself in the wizarding world! The Warner Bros. Studio Tour Tokyo awaits
The Warner Bros. Studio Tour Tokyo – The Making of Harry Potter details how the producers brought the magic of Harry Potter to life. Far from an amusement park, here fans can go behind the scenes and see the intricate details that went into creating a groundbreaking, globally renowned franchise. Visitors have the opportunity to step onto actual movie sets, examine props and costumes up close and take part in interactive experiences.
Even more – with many different photo ops throughout the attraction, guests donning wizarding robes and clutching wands can take photos looking like they're fresh out of Hogwarts!
Go behind-the-scenes and see how producers brought the magic to life
Aside from film sets, props and clothing used in the films, visitors can get a close look into the production of the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts franchises. The tour features set dioramas and concept art used to create memorable movie scenes. It also explains how sets were constructed and what materials were used, how the sounds in the movies were produced and the different techniques used to bring magical creatures to life.
Step onto set and become a Harry Potter star
Throughout the tour, there are several interactive experiences for visitors to enjoy. Visitors can step onto a greenscreen and join a crowd of spectators for a Quidditch match, ride a broomstick over London's cityscape, become a moving painting in the Grand Staircase or use Floo Powder to travel to the Ministry of Magic. To take these memorable moments home with them, visitors can conveniently register their email address via a QR code provided at the start of the tour, and scan it before or after they shoot their scene.
Indulge in a glass of Butterbeer and other magical delights
At the entrance of the Studio Tour, visitors can treat themselves to a delicious array of themed foods and treats at the Frog Cafe and Food Hall. The Food Hall is designed to resemble the iconic Great Hall of the series – long tables, house tapestries and floating candles – to create a magical atmosphere. Next door, the Frog Cafe offers a unique dining experience where guests can enjoy their meals inside giant chocolate frog boxes used as booths.
Midway through the tour, visitors can rest their feet and refresh at the Backlot Cafe. It features many Hogwarts House themed meals and treats, magical drinks and even a Professor Umbridge-inspired Afternoon Tea Set. And of course, no Harry Potter experience is complete without Butterbeer, which can be enjoyed nearby at the world's largest Butterbeer Bar.
Save your galleons for Tokyo-exclusive merchandise
There are two shops at Studio Tour Tokyo: the Studio Shop and the Railway Shop. In the Studio Shop – known as the largest Harry Potter shop in the world – guests can browse and buy many different items including robes, wands, character goods, Tokyo-exclusive merchandise and customizable notebooks. The Studio Shop is conveniently located in the lobby, so visitors can make their purchase before or after their tour. The Railway Shop is found midway through the tour, near the Hogwarts Express on Platform 9 3/4, and also offers a number of exclusive items.
Planning your visit to Warner Bros. Studio Tour Tokyo
Travelers interested in this enchanting Harry Potter experience can purchase tickets online at the official Studio Tour Tokyo website. Reservations can be made several months in advance, but keep in mind that once you've booked your ticket, the date and time cannot be changed. Please also note that tickets cannot be purchased at the venue itself.
To ensure a comfortable experience, it's recommended that visitors wear suitable shoes, as the Studio Tour covers an expansive area equivalent to 90,000 square meters. While the tour typically takes about three to four hours, if you prefer to take your time and fully enjoy the experience, consider reserving an earlier time slot to make the most of your visit and explore at a leisurely pace.
Around Warner Bros. Studio Tour Tokyo
For another fun location to complement your trip to Warner Bros. Studio Tour Tokyo, Sunshine City in Ikebukuro is a great place to visit on the way home.

Sunshine Aquarium can be found on the top floor of Sunshine City's World Import Mart Building, and it's home to 23,000 aquatic creatures representing 550 species.
