Let’s fully enjoy the feeling of the Shinsengumi Clan by visiting their related territories, or by renting one of their free happi coats!
In the Studio Park, there are many spots related to the Shinsengumi Clan, such as their military quarters, the “Ikedaya”, and the “Teradaya”. Customers will have the chance to wear the Shinsengumi happi coats and enjoy the movie village open set as if they were actually back in time.
① Use your Smartphone to find and visit the territories related to the Shinsengumi Clan
We will hold a digital “stamp-collection” competition related to visiting places related to Shinsengumi Clan throughout Kyoto city. This time, with the aim of promoting “non-contact tours,” we have developed a new service that allows our customers to enjoy touring (using avatars), including a function that automatically obtains “completion stamps” once a certain Shinsengumi Clan related spot is visited.
Once the final goal (the Studio Park) is reached, all the participants will receive an original handkerchief with written on it a certificate of military enrollment as a participation gift.
