Walking With Dinosaurs

25 Mar

Have you ever heard of the “Walking With Dinosaurs” show from England?

It was originally a BBC documentary about dinosaurs…but now they have traveling exhibition / arena show with life-sized, very realistic looking dinosaur robot / costumes.

They’re bringing their show to Japan this summer for a seven-city Japan tour.
They brought one of their dinosaurs to Tokyo today to promote their show on morning talk shows on Japan’s “Fuji TV” channel.

The “baby dinosaur” and one of the show’s staff were in the TV studio in Tokyo this morning. The show’s Japanese cast were all impressed by how realistic looking, acting and sounding the dinosaur was.

I have three daughters. They’re not really interested in dinosaurs…so we won’t be seeing it.

But if you’re in Japan this summer, you can buy a ticket for ¥4,200 – ¥10,500 for adults (¥3.150 – ¥7,350 for kids).

The dates of the Japan show are:
2010 July 8 – 11: Yokohama
July 16 – 19: Hiroshima
July 22 – 25: Osaka
July 29 – August 1: Shizuoka
August 5 – 8: Saitama
August 12 – 15: Aichi
August 19 – 22: Fukuoka

      It was in Japan during the summer of 2010.

      I don’t know when, where, or even if any future shows will be.

      It’s called “Walking With Dinosaurs”. You should google it and check their website.

      By the way, what city do you live in?
      How old are your kids?

      >were was this and is there anther one ay time soon ?

      As I mentioned here, this show is coming back to the Tokyo area this summer (2013).

      I’d contact you directly to tell you…but you didn’t include your email address in your comment.
      But if you (or anyone else) want more info about this event (or anything else about Tokyo, or Japan in general)…feel free to use my blog’s Contact Form to ask.

    It looks like it would be a good show but how much in US$? If I’m figuring it right one of the tickets would be $105!! Could that be right, or am I not up on how much some things really cost.

      Actually, the US dollar isn’t weak now. At today’s exchange rate, the adult tickets would be about US$46 – $114 (depending on the seats).

      >am I not up on how much some things really cost…

      Tickets are expensive these days…but I think this show’s tickets are especially expensive.
      That’s why we’re not going…my kids aren’t particularly interested in dinosaurs. If someone has a son who loves dinosaurs, though, it’s probably worth the price to go.
