Warner Bros. Studio Tour Tokyo is currently developing The Making of Harry Potter tour facilities on part of the former Toshimaen Amusement Park grounds located in Nerima-Ku, Tokyo.

The Making of Harry Potter tour facilities will span 322,000 sf and offer special features to enable visitors to deepen their understanding of the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts worlds. Visitors will be able to explore iconic movie sets that were designed and built by the creators of the Harry Potter series. The indoor attraction will feature original costumes and props from the movies and enable guests to experience scenes from the films firsthand, discovering how the book series was brought to life on the screen.

The exhibition space within the "sound stage" and "backlot" (outdoor filming areas) zones will take approximately half a day to walk through. Open space outside of the entrance will be a landscaped area with bespoke sculptures of characters from the films.

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government has plans to develop a public park on part of the former grounds that will be developed in conjunction with the Studio Tour Tokyo facilities. The Making of Harry Potter tour is set to open in the first half of 2023.
