Visit Iconic Locations From the Films

The Great Hall
As you begin your journey, you’ll first approach the entrance to the Great Hall of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, awaiting the grand doors to open. Fans will be reminded of that unforgettable moment from the first film, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, when Harry and his fellow first-year classmates exchanged glances filled with both nervousness and anticipation when about to enter.

The floor is tiled with real Yorkstone, which is often used in European castles. You can also admire the detail on the original costumes worn by the Hogwarts faculty in the Great Hall.

The grotesques in the hall are in the shape of animals representing each of the four Hogwarts houses. Details that may have been missed when watching the film can be seen up close.

■ The Moving Grand Staircase
One of the most memorable features of Hogwarts is the Grand Staircase, and you’ll be able to witness it in action, mysteriously shifting positions. Not only that, by taking a video in a special area, you can become part of the art in the form of a moving portrait. Seeing yourself in the frame on the staircase walls will make you feel like a legendary wizard who has left their mark on the history of magic. You can also take a video of yourself in the moving frame to keep as a memorable souvenir of your visit.

Take in the Scale and Detail

■The Ministry of Magic
One of the exclusive set pieces only to be shown at Studio Tour Tokyo is the London Ministry of Magic.

Inspired by the elegant architecture of the 19th-century Victorian era, the office corridors have thousands of lacquered green and red wood pieces, handcrafted to resemble ceramic tiles.
Fans will instantly recognize this iconic set from the scene in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 where Harry, Ron, and Hermione go undercover as Ministry of Magic employees for their daring mission.

In the films, Ministry of Magic employees travel to work using Floo powder, which transports them through various network ports such as phone booths, restrooms, and fireplaces.

In this section, you have the extraordinary chance to capture the essence of this magical commute by posing for a photo or video within a giant fireplace nearly three meters tall. With the addition of smoke and mesmerizing lighting effects, the experience becomes even more immersive, making you feel like an authentic Ministry of Magic employee transporting in for a day’s work.

■ Backlot
Stepping foot outside to the backlot area, you can discover more iconic sets from the Harry Potter films. Keep an eye out for the Dursley’s home nestled on Privet Drive, where Harry’s journey first began.

You can also stroll across Hogwarts Bridge, check out the flying car from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, and witness the enchanting triple-decker Knight Bus as seen in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. These are just a few examples of the meticulously crafted and intricately detailed sets where you can relive scenes from the films.

If you want to take a breather, have a seat at the Butterbeer Bar, complete with an open-air terrace. You can unwind and enjoy a sweet and refreshing non-alcoholic Butterbeer while leisurely taking in the captivating atmosphere around you.

You won’t want to miss Diagon Alley, a bustling street where witches and wizards gather to prepare for the upcoming school year. In the station area, marvel at the Hogwarts Express and take an iconic photo as you’re just about to jump through the brick wall at Platform 9 ¾ with a heap of luggage.

Additionally, at Studio Tour Tokyo, you’ll be able to step foot in the previously unseen wonders of Dumbledore’s Headmaster’s Office and the mysterious Slytherin Common Room, allowing fans to delve deeper into the rich tapestry of the Harry Potter universe.

Studio Tour Tokyo has the world’s largest collection of Wizarding World products in two shops: the Studio Shop and the Railway Shop. There are 14 meticulously themed sections adorned with over 7,000 custom-made items and props, making for a fully immersive experience when you step in.
