Delve deep into Japanese history at Edo Wonderland, a theme park bringing to life of one the nation's most important historical eras. Dedicated to the Edo period (1603-1868), this expansive park recreates daily with the help of a host of actors in traditional costume. Stroll down the replica main street lined with period wooden buildings and shops, from farmers' cottages to the homes of the legendary samurai. Stop in at an Oiran or Ninja show for a look at classical theater performances, or try your hand at archery. You'll find all sorts of activity going on at the park throughout the day, so be sure to check the website for information regarding upcoming special events and performances. Edo Wonderland is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Nikko Edition.

  • A village, Edoh-Era replica ... A visit that takes part in the morning or afternoon, as it has several attractions, between ninjas, theatres of the time among other attractions. At the entrance you will receive a schedule of these attractions. The price eh a little pricey for being a walk run ... but it's a ride worth seeing ...

  • Visit for the holidays. Cold wind, what to do and I soon entered the Edo merchant Cairo received. Meticulous care. Is recommended for the Ninja mystery mystery Bower, challenged in a children's favorite. Confused by the strange sense of direction I want to go to follow the guest everyone laughing lost sense of balance as is really funny! Baked rice crackers are recommended. Cracker biscuit of the Moon so delicious baked! New discoveries and failed. It was people from foreign countries quite a few photo shoots, I was asked that we have enjoyed!

  • 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 side trip in Nikko. Perfect place to have that kimono photo opportunity.
  • Edo Wonderland in Nikko, Japan. To know about Ninja ans Samurai's culture.
  • 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.
  • Wanna bring back time to become samurai or ninja? here is highly recommended. :)
