In a treat for Harry Potter fans in Asia, Warner Bros. is all set to expand the Harry Potter tour to Tokyo.
The company showed a preview of a new “Harry Potter” studio tour in the Japanese capital on Wednesday, first outside the United Kingdom.
The experience, which launches this summer, allows fans to wander the sets of Diagon Alley and Platform 9 3/4, and see original props and costumes from the films up close.
“We’ve kept it all,” Jeff Nagler, president of worldwide studio operations at Warner Bros., was quoted by CNN.
According to Nagler, Japan is one of its top markets and has the potential to serve as a gateway to the wider Asia Pacific region, which is why the studio had chosen Japan. Nagler’s aim is to bring in fans from countries such as China, South Korea, and Australia.
“That was one of the easiest decisions for us actually,” he said, standing in front of a red Hogwarts Express train emitting gentle puffs of steam. “After the United States and after the UK, Japan is the third best area for ‘Harry Potter’ fandom,” as per CNN.
The company’s existing London tour is already popular with US visitors, Nagler added: “But we weren’t having quite as many people from the Asia Pacific region.”
