  • The place is out of season, number of employees more than tourists. And its employees all wearing costumes of Edo, and snappy. Play Ninja is wonderful. I think that fencing is a boon of the daily training. It didn't level with the 浮wa of tourism. Hand-Baked crackers it was fun. However, 4,700 yen entrance fee is high.

  • Loved visiting this place as everyone that worked there was dressed up and so friendly posing for as many photos as you liked. Vistors can dress up too in traditional outfits and wander the park, watc...  more »
  • Buildings and rooftops has been crafted in its own way, but on this scale of ¥ 4700 I wonder how? Take extra parking, hotels and advance with the discount, but no such information on the accommodation front. I hope further facilities.

  • 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.
