New Harry Potter Theme Park Set To Open In Tokyo, Japan In 2023
It looks like Universal Studios Japan in Osaka will no longer be the only place for Potterheads to visit because another Wizarding World is opening. According to Kyodo News (in Japanese), the Seibu Railway company officially announced that it would close the 94-year old amusement park Toshimaen in Nerima to make room for a new Harry Potter theme park. The word is that Toshimaen will be closing on August 31, 2020 and construction for the new park will commence with an expected completion date in the first half of 2023.
The planned Harry Potter attraction will apparently mimic the Warner Bros. Studio Tour in London where visitors can view production sets, and get up-close with props like wands and potions. However, the new park will not have rides like the ones at Universal Studios Japan.
