  • We really enjoyed the visit to Edo Wonderland. Great time for kids. I recommend renting a car and combining a visit to the Nikko shrines. We started early at Edo, so we did most of the shows till noon...  read more »
  • Visit before the holidays. Dare with no homework, enjoyed more than expected. Ninja swordfight, the courtesan, ōoka Echizen. Elementary school seems to field trips and school students was so crowded that I saw while watching the show schedule here: is that...... such as and could efficiently viewing. The first "sounds expensive! "And could convince thought entrance fees. Baked in your own snack (one 150-car ya), delicious!.

  • Stylized village close to Nikko (there are buses). Many performances, actors and entertainers, but interesting and just wander around the buildings and streets. Very funny maze at the Center.

  • 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.
  • 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
  • No waiting in lines, and everything well organized. I loved.
  • Atmosphere is very nice, nicely located at a mountain with forest. Labyrinth is big fun, also the Ninja shows are nice for kids. Considering the very high entrance fee, it is not acceptable to pay for most of the activities quite a lot of money. Food is also quite expensive as yakitori stick costs 600JYP.
  • 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.
