Toei Kyoto Studio Park is going to get a lot cooler from July 13 until September 8.
In addition to its usual attractions and shows, the Park is going to add a show with water. Water will spray visitors during a popular samurai show.
To recreate the Edo Period (1603 - 1868) - in which there were no air conditioners - the Park is going to be incorporating all kinds of old-school methods of staying cool without using electricity.
They include "kakigori" shaved ice topped with namahachi (sweet cinnamon buns).
The "Chanbara" sword fighting show will include a "water platoon." You were warned.
