Welcoming its first winter this year, the dramatic snow-covered landscape makes it the perfect season to immerse yourself in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Since its opening in July 2014 the attraction has brought a huge increase in visitors from all over Japan each month. The world featured in the Harry Potter stories is brought to life on a magnificent scale. Nestled deep within a snowy landscape, the rooftops in the village of Hogsmeade are covered in snow and icicles hang from the eaves. The village has been recreated in amazing, elaborate detail and winter is the perfect time to feel like you really are immersed in this world.
