In the depth of autumn
the paradise of Japanese period dramas,
Toei Kyoto Studio Park,
welcomes back a legendary party
polished to perfection.
Samurai and kimono-clad girls streaming by
in the light of paper lanterns,
the mellow sound of shamisen music,
the fragrant haze drifting from the tavern,
the glamour of the geisha quarters,
and in the alley beyond it,
ronin smugly exchanging cups of sake…
The autumn event catering to mature tastes is set in a stage
that takes you on a trip back in time.
Admire the pride of Kyoto tradition,
taste delicious local sake,
and savor meals from exclusive Japanese restaurants.
Themed around 400 years
of the Rimpa school of Japanese painting,
and period dramas that are the specialty
of the Kyoto Studio Park,
Uzumasa Edo Sakaba “Autumn of Rimpa”
explores the charms of
traditional Japanese culture and the joy of strolling in a kimono.
Welcome back to a leisurely journey of Kyoto—
a journey that revisits
the Edo period four centuries ago.
