  • Amazing theme park. Be sure to visit and try to go at least 12.00. There's so much that I want to dwell on every square metre in order to learn how and why))) beautiful organization places, cafes, souvenir shops, presentation, animation ... If you care for them it will be a real gift! The main thing is that you are lucky with the weather, i.e. to some views can be cancelled. And yet, be sure to hit the Ninja show, it's very very impressive!

  •  In this area most enjoyable Nikko Edo village only! I use a discount. If [off], the Smartphone Show Edo village website discount screen (print-friendly) ▲ 470 Yen / person site or travel agent in advance to buy tuition. You do not need to buy ahead of time if you risk to be heavy rain. -JAF and co-op subscriber ▲ 700 yen / person so take a look at make use of. [Space]-Street dining and event 2-staff won't get until closing, so at about 300 m wide as TDR and USJ Huis ten Bosch, in the am but my uncle. -Tea House, souvenir, and experience entertainment on main street, there are play and action observation at the back and side streets, almost always doing something or plays, events, but on a whim to go go a few minutes near so easy! -Staff dressed as a tradesman and Detective walking up and thanks for your naughty customers once in a while, even a small child could enjoy in the old.  [Program]-play around 30 minutes, seen in front of the head too quickly that is between. Kennan Institute of magistrate is a particularly good idea.  Involving the audience and have fun.  Gag mainly because most children can tolerate. "Wakamatsuya" in a chosen foreign tourists, on stage to rise and was (wealthy customer) participated in an impromptu. -Action series Ninja thing. Two darker on the left near the entrance of theatre in action!  In a small theater unfolded in front of the eyes. Seen in front of "Crow House" Grand Ninja Theater 30 minutes, 15 minutes and short on drama. -Museum and experience was basic: free.  "Baked rice crackers and Indigo dyeing" is paid. In "Ninja Monster Mystery House" kind of interesting. [Food]-If you're eating "Kikusui", nice eating yakitori skewers in "tamaru" and "山kujira". And at the Matsumae were break coffee and bun. -¥ 500-2000 yen level and event venue price, also the atmosphere of the place was awesome, there was no. -Depending on your preference, may good tea and coffee bring to pot. [Bonus] / Edo village directly without, in the neighborhood of parking in front, because by mistake, do not let! If not crowded the mezashimashou Edo village parking lot. And here again is the Edo in old-fashioned also parking ticket booth at the entrance. , Increasing luggage to return because there is a souvenir shop at the entrance to my otherwise here OK. -From the entrance of mountains more than 100 m of road wind through and enters Edo period villages.  -At the entrance of the village are; and the horse, is ride in was clean take馬 at an additional cost. Tired not because the events are from beginning to end and somewhere, not a boring performance time too long, enjoyed one day see in, this time of the Kinugawa and (also I posted) to go from the hotel were very clean home, about 10 minutes. To couple or family play 1, on a day trip from Tokyo metropolitan area where I thought. If stayed close to where you want to go again!

  • The ninja show (20 minutes) is worth taking the time to watch. Our teenagers loved the ninja house, throwing darts, stars and archery. Everything costs you something and the biggest cost is the period...  more »

  • Worth spending some time here, particularly if you're with a Japanese speaker who can make it far more accessible. We spent half a day here and probably could have done 6 hours if we were to catch every single thing on offer. The set performances were good but the street performers were far more interesting; particularly we loved the wandering Samurai and his "snake oil" (or Toad oil as you'd say in Japanese) show.
  • Great place to spend the day. Many small shows and demonstrations throughout the day. Some are repeated for convenience. Many good food choices and prices are what you expect to pay inside a theme park. Highly recommended.
  • not bad at all to stop by if you come to Nikko , not many things to do but just its village layout and construction itself are very nice and interesting .. also many spot fir a great selfie
  • Had a great time during my visit here. Interesting theme, it's like transported to Edo period. However, the shows are all in Japanese and some are hard to follow if you don't speak any Japanese. Recommended for side trip from Nikko and surrounding areas.
  • Rather big theme park with people and buildings from the Edo era. Especially fun if you have kids to bring along. While descriptions are also in English people can't speak English.
