Tokyo Akasaka is Transformed into the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! Opening of Harry Potter Café and Theme Shop

The stage play “Harry Potter and The Cursed Child” based on the original story by Jack Thorne, J.K. Rowling and John Difney will come to Asia in July 2022 and be brought to the Japanese stage so that Harry Potter fans in Asia can also experience the great charm of the wizarding world at close range. In order to allow people to experience the magic of the original work and the stage, such as moving stairs and portraits, from mid-June 2022, Tokyo Akasaka neighborhood will be transformed into a real-life wizarding world, in addition to Harry Potter-themed cafes and Harry Potter-themed stores will also be newly opened.

First of all, I would like to send you a “Marauder’s Map”.

Magic World in Reality

The magic begins at Akasaka Station, and from June 16, the “big staircase” around Akasaka Station will be temporarily renamed “Wizarding World Gate” and presented to visitors as the “moving staircase” in Hogwarts, and the “moving portraits” that we often see in Hogwarts will also be a part of the real magic world. A total of about 42 portraits will be displayed on the wall, the ceiling will be decorated with a beautiful starry sky, and the most eye-catching is a large model of the Time-Turner that “can turn back time” will also be displayed.

After leaving Akasaka Station,the street “Nakatori” near the Biz Tower in Akasaka is transformed into “Wizarding World Street” and becoming the student dormitory for the four houses of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, with banners and other decorations around it.
