What a wonderful experience! We arrived during winter so the park was very quiet which ended up being perfect because we got to experience the whole park without excessive wait time.
Obviously a few hours away from Tokyo Central but well worth the early morning and late night trek!
The actors were friendly and everyone was so helpful because we didn’t speak much Japanese.
Bright. Colorful! Loud! Energetic!
The shows were amazing (the ninja sow is a MUST-SEE)!!!! Dress up and have the most wonderful time!

A great place to visit! though the shows are in Japanese, they are still entertaining to watch. Try out the archery. DEFINITELY try the ninja house! but beware it can make you nauseous.

THE MOST AMAZING THEME PARK I'VE EVER BEEN TO ON EARTH! We went on a day with heavy rain and we couldn't speak any Japanese but it was unbelievable. A dream come true - a live-action Samurai theme park! You step back in time to the Edo period. I literally want to come back to Japan just for this. 3 hours FLEW by like nothing. Please be open when I return!! An experience not to be missed!

The shows (theatre) and sights were wonderful, but it would have been great to have some halal food available to Muslim visitors and a (small) designated prayer room. But the management was wonderful in accommodating our request to perform our prayers by opening up their studio. Thank you!
