Meet Samurai at Uzumasa Theme Park

by Tatsuhiro

What is Uzumasa Theme Park ? 

  You can experience a "time travel" to and enjoy the atmosphere of the Edo period (1603-1867) of Japan in this theme park, otherwise known as the "Hollywood of Japan". There are many houses and structures mostly made of wood that were in use in Japan`s feudal ages: ordinary houses, "Ninjya" house, haunted house, sake merchant`s shop, old-fashioned restaurants, and so on. Samurai walk on the streets and there are "chambara" performances in which a couple of Samurai fight with a mock sword against each other.

 Other buildings and facilities include Nakamura-za Theater, Movie Culture Hall, Uzumasa Trick Art Hall, Nihon-bashi Bridge, Maze Hall, and so on.

What you can enjoy

  You can enjoy seeing buildings and structures that appeared or may appear in the future Japanese Samurai movies and TV dramas and also take part in "chambara". You can immerse yourself in the Edo period atmosphere. You can imagine how the Edo era was like. It may be fun to talk to "Samurai" in a formal attire who stand at the entrances of some of the buildings. You can spend a good part of your day just strolling on the unpaved streets in the compound, while being amazed at how minutely Japan`s former period is reproduced. To see is to believe. Just visit the place.

Eating places

 You have no worries in eating. Just go through the entrance and you can find a huge restaurant which serves almost any kind of cuisine: Japanese, Chinese or French. There are also smaller restaurants in the precincts where you can have whatever food you like. 

How much does the tour cost ?

 The entrance fee is 2,200 yen.

Tatsuhiro is very kind and respectful. He was eager to share local insights, advice and directions on inquiries, even those unrelated to the tour. I was impressed that he was well versed with Japanese-Philippine history and felt his sincerity in wanting to better understand our culture and people. We had to put extra effort to understand his English at times.

We (my family 3 kids aged 15,14,11) visiting from Chicago enjoyed the day with Tatsuhiro. He made sure to ask what we wanted to do to plan the trip and then adjust to our needs during the tour.

Tatsuhiro-san was truly valuable in navigating the kyoto bus system. He had thoughtfully prepared for the tour by keeping in touch with us via email prior to our arrival in Osaka, and he had even visited the sites on our itinerary a week ahead just so he can brief us on what we could expect to see and how to better maximize it, as well made sure all necessary reservations were made on some of the ...
