Even if fans are familiar with the studio tour in London, they will have plenty of reasons to visit the new studio tour in Tokyo. This includes a set exclusive to Warner Bros. Studio Tour Tokyo from Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, as noted in the press release.
Also featured in this section of the [s]tudio [t]our is [t]he Great Wizarding Express, a set that is exclusive to Tokyo, which appeared in Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore. The train carriage is art deco in styling, to match the era, and is decorated with ornate detailing throughout, re[-]creating the appearance of birdseye maple, ebony and brass inlay strips. Depicting the scene where Newt Scamander leads an intrepid team of wizards, witches, and one brave Muggle baker on a dangerous mission, the mannequins display the costumes of Newt Scamander, Jacob Kowalski, Theseus Scamander, Bunty Broadacre, Yusuf Kama and Eulalia “Lally” Hicks.
Visitors looking for shopping will have no shortage of options either, and they might want to save up their Galleons for a shopping spree. Warner Bros. Studio Tour Tokyo will feature the world’s largest Harry Potter shop to date.
The [s]tudio [t]our will also be home to the largest Harry Potter shop in the world, featuring 14 themed sections that are decorated with over 7,000 bespoke and specially sourced props. The areas are beautifully designed and take inspiration from elements of the shops on Diagon Alley, including Honeydukes, Ollivanders and Flourish and Blotts. A huge range of products will be available to buy, many of which have been exclusively developed for Warner Bros. Studio Tour Tokyo. In addition, visitors can enjoy a choice of restaurants and cafés, which will serve a celebration of traditional British fare such as fish and chips, roast beef, English breakfast and [a]fternoon [t]ea.
