Not a good experience. Overpriced for what it is, two of the areas I was interested in was closed, there was no diacount on entry for this and everything else was designed for very young audiences.

It’s a relatively small place with some activities such as the haunted house and maze. The shows are good. Souvenirs are cheaper than other tourist sites in Kyoto. But not really worth it. Half a day would really be enough if you insist on visiting...More
