If ninja and samurai are your thing, then you’re going to love Edo Wonderland Nikkō Edomura, a cultural theme park in Nikkō, Tochigi Prefecture.

What’s Edo Wonderland Nikkō Edomura like?

This theme park gives visitors the chance to step back in time and experience Edo Period (1603-1867) Japan. It has the feel of a old, traditional Japanese town, with staff dressed to match. Expect to see men dressed as samurai and kimono-clad women wandering around and posing for photos. Explore local stores with woodblock prints, toys, and ceramics before venturing into the experience zones and wax museums where you can try throwing ninja stars and learn about firefighting in the Edo Period. The family-orientated theme park also has performances like ninja acrobatic acts and comdey shows.
