AMAZING EXPERIENCE! Outfit rentals are a little pricey (up to 10,000+ Yen for some) but worth while for the immersive experience. Admission tickets and outfit rentals can be done with credit cards, everything else inside is CASH ONLY, so come prepared if you plan to eat or drink inside the park. Shows are scheduled a little too close together with not enough showings so you can't exit one show and jump right into the next, specially for shows that are popular and fill quickly. If you REALLY want to see a show at a specific time get there 10-15 minutes early and get in line. Because of the show schedule I mentioned above, I HIGHLY recommend you get to Edo Wonderland as soon as the open, specially if you plan to rent an outfit. There is a 30-45min wait between selecting/paying for your outfit and the actual fitting. My wife and I used the wait time to eat so we could avoid getting hungry while at the park. We did buy some hot drinks between shows: the Amazake and Citron tea we're delicious, and they had English menus at the little cafe. Due to the town being Edo themed, all the shop name signs are in Japanese only, the park map has them in English. There is a free shuttle from the JR Nikko station to Edo Wonderland. The shuttle does not run very frequently so make sure you either Cath the first one or arrive close to one of the departures, I'll attach a picture of the JR Nikko Station Edomura shuttle. The shuttle is red says Edo Wonderland right on it, you can't miss it. The stop is just left of the JR Nikko Station exit.

Stepping into Edo Wonderland in Nikko feels like entering a living museum of Japan's Edo period. The atmosphere is steeped in authenticity, transporting visitors to a time of samurais, ninjas, and Geishas. The performances are the heart of the experience, from the adrenaline-pumping ninja shows to the graceful and mesmerizing Geisha dances that captivate audiences. What sets this place apart is its immersive nature. Exploring the ninja area is an adventure in itself, with challenging mazes and the excitement of a crazy house. The hands-on experiences, especially the samurai training for kids, offer a unique educational aspect, allowing young ones to learn about ancient weaponry firsthand. But it's not just about the shows and activities; it's a holistic experience. Edo Wonderland's attention to detail in recreating the ambiance of the Edo era extends to the food offerings, allowing visitors to taste traditional flavors from that period, enhancing the overall journey through time. This destination is a treasure trove for families, combining entertainment, education, and cultural immersion. It's a place where history comes alive, inviting everyone, from kids to adults, to step back centuries and experience the vibrant tapestry of Japan's past in a thrilling and unforgettable way.

Edo Wonderland is a good place if you want to experience Japan's Edo period. I came here on April 2023 and it was rainy season, so I didn't experience all of the attractions. The place is really cool with a lot of old style houses and the staffs were wearing outfits that match the Edo period. I had to try the foods in one of the restaurants and it was good.

Amazing experience, you get to travel back in time and experience Edo period recreations and craftsmanship. Staff were extremely helpful from the get go, you get given the map and a schedule with times for the shows. Very easy to navigate the park itself and try different activities. If it's in your budget, I recommend visiting the costume rental shop and just immerse yourself in it.

A fun historic reenactment village. There is a free shuttle bus from the Nikko JR station on some days (closed Wednesdays). Most activities inside you buy a ticket from a machine and give to the attendant. Some activities were not operating the day we came which is disappointing considering the entry cost. The samurai experience and ninja theatre were excellent.
