From Nijo take the San-In line, drop by Uzumasa.  There is only one exit and has a sign going to TOEI Studio Park.

The area is big, but you can spend half a day or 3-4 hours to enjoy and see what's worth of the entrance.

Anime Museum

Hero Land in Padios





Request for the English Guide for the show schedule.  I was able to enjoy Street Performance Re-Enactment (Samurai Sword Fighting).  The actors also allowed the public to have photo opportunity with them. 


Guided Park Tour (by one of the actors) - Here, the actor is explaining in full Japanese language, so I revisited the sites to read the English introduction in each section.
