Shochiku Studio — Closed to the public, one reserved party per day, custom projects

Use the studio however you want for a whole day!

Step into Shochiku Studio, which is not open to the public, and travel back in time to the Edo period!
Waiting rooms, make-up room, and costume room for cast are available to use for hair styling, makeup, and costume fitting.
Set A will be decorated exclusively for you, with private photo shoots by a dedicated lighting technician and a professional cameraman currently working as a still photographer for movies and TV dramas. (Photos will be printed and shipped at a later date.)
Fight scenes and galloping horses, which are rarely seen even when filming movies and TV dramas, are new features that can be prepared exclusively for our customers. After viewing the fight performance, you can take a private lesson in swordsmanship from a fight choreographer.
You are free to take a stroll through the open set, have a photo session, take a lesson in swordsmanship, take photos with the horses, and even have lunch. A day at Shochiku Studio, where countless masterpieces have been created, is all available to you!
