  • Was a great all day experience. Great for kids, because they can dress up as ninjas or wear kimonos. I do not have kids, but I believe there is a ninja school for the kids as well. There are plenty of shows and attractions to keep one entertained for many hours. However, the shows are in Japanese, so brush up before you go or you will not fully understand what is going on (like I did). I think we were here from 10am to 5pm, so I think overall a good value. Costume rentals are a bit steep in my opinion. Food options are limited and reasonable/slightly expensive. We went when there were still some cherry blossoms, so the scenery was beautiful!
  • Nice place and shows ... I loved the ninja show ... Perfectly choreographed and action sound music all are in sync... The illusion room was awesome... U can not withstand it for more than 10 min.
  • It was cool to see an old japanese style village. The shows were good, but i expected more Edo dressed people walking around. All in all i had fun though.
  • A great place to relive the times Edo. It does not feel too tacky or themepark-ish, so overall a great experience.
  • Fun ninja show and lots of dress up options. Good for kids with free shuttle bus from Nikko Station
