Edo Wonderland, Nikko

4.0
#1 of 8 in Theme Parks in Tochigi Prefecture
Theme Park Water / Amusement Park
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.

  • This is expensive, tired, has seen better days. It is geared for tourists but nothing is written in English, even the guide book. The shows are tired. The actors aren't any more enthusiastic. Activiti...  more »

  • 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.
  • Nice theme park, some shows are awesome, but relatively small, can not jutisfy the price. Transportation only bus or taxi
  • 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.

Where to stay in Nikko

Rich in history, culture, and nature, you'll be pleased to find that Nikko also boasts a rich variety of accommodations. Competition may be pretty fierce at peak times, but make your reservation early and you'll be able to find somewhere to sleep that suits your style. Luxury hotels and boutiques with "onsen" (traditional Japanese spas) never stray too far from the river, while hostels and guesthouses tend to be tucked away on side streets, and up in the north of town. Mid-range and standard hotels lie close to the main train stations and by the main plazas.
