Theme 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.

  • Titles are as follows. I would spend the day and enjoy senjougahara and color together with ban, if the season is right. The buildings are quaint, was created during the Edo period atmosphere. Even pretending they can reply samurais and townspeople at different rates, so the Zoo for location.

  • For whatever reason, I really enjoyed this visit. Probably much more than I expected. It's a return to era of ninja and samurais, and I especially enjoy the ninja stuffs. The show, the weird ninja hou...  more »
  • What I admire the most is the "detail" and efforts in bringing Edo to life. The Ninja performance is great - sound and lighting are perfect. Even i don't understand Japanese, the act reaches audience ...  more »

  • 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. :)
