The largest Harry Potter store in the world, with 14 themed areas that are furnished with more than 7,000 custom-made and specially procured props, will also be located on the Studio Tour.
The spaces have been exquisitely designed, drawing inspiration from Honeydukes, Ollivanders, Flourish and Blotts, among other stores found within Diagon Alley.
There will be a vast selection of magical merchandise available for purchase, many of which were created just for Warner Bros. Studio Tour, Tokyo and visitors can also select from a variety of cafes and restaurants that will serve typical British fare like fish and chips, roast beef, English breakfast, and afternoon tea.

The Hogwarts Train on Platform 9 3/4 was unveiled as the first of several magical film sets at Warner Bros. Studio Tour Tokyo to commemorate the event.

HOGWARTS LEGACY 2 IS IN THE WORKS BY WARNER BROTHERS
The Hogwarts Express, a genuine British steam locomotive built in 1929 and known as The Dumbleton Hall, is housed in the Platform 9 3/4 set, which was produced by the original Harry Potter filmmakers using realistic techniques. The tour locomotive was restored in England before being transferred to Japan to occupy its location at the Studio Tour.
Visitors may anticipate spending about four hours touring the only Warner Bros. Studio Tour to open in Asia, which will be the largest indoor Harry Potter experience in the world. We certainly can’t wait to purchase our tickets and to visit this new insight into the Wizarding World!
