Edo Wonderland Nikko Edomura
Edo Wonderland Nikko Edo Village is a theme park made to transport you back to the Edo era of feudal Japan. On the premises, which is large enough to fit 10 Tokyo Domes, there are familiar roads, post stations, the houses of merchants, samurai houses, a ninja village and town replicas just like the ones you have seen on Japanese historical TV dramas and movies.
The best way to experience the park is to take the “when in Rome” saying literally and do as Edo people did. You can borrow some costumes for samurais, princesses, townspeople and other famous characters of the past. While in your village attire, try out ancient martial arts and craftworks.
At the theater, you can catch some famous Edo comedy shows as well as ninja and traditional performances. "Ninja Kai Kai Tei" is a popular attraction here. The oblique-shaped building plays tricks on your perception of space as soon as you enter it, making it difficult for you to distinguish the ceiling, the wall, and the floor. The further in you go, the more your equilibrium gets thrown off. It is said that this place was built for ninja training purposes, so it seems that there are many people who challenge themselves by repeatedly going into the building to see if they are suitable for becoming a ninja. Now let’s go into the land of historical drama.
