It was fun and family friendly. Many tourist people, but many spoke English fairly well. One of the comedy shows we randomly stumbled upon became the highlight of that day--where one of our friends was randomly selected to play as the main character in the play. He became famous afterward because everyone knew his name.

Great family place! Colonial times Tokyo! Lots of stuff to do to keep everyone entertained all day. First, you can rent super cool period clothing. Kids lived it! The adults looked great too! Shows were fun. Water show and Ninja show are the highlights. Lots of food and snacks. Lots of Edo activities. Throwing stars were super fun and kids won prizes! If you rent samurai or kimono garb, do the Ninja house after you return your outfit since you won't fit!

Edo Wonderland is certainly one of a kind. The attention to detail is remarkable; it was like stepping into a time portal to Edo. Though my Nihongo is quite limited, I enjoyed the shows. Wish I could’ve stayed longer but we had to catch the train back to Tokyo.
Don’t miss the Kai Kai Ninja House (not for the easily dizzy!) and the Ninja Maze. Has anyone here solved the maze? I never did, dammit. 😂

This place has a lot to offer for everyone in the family! The shows are fun to watch and well performed. The buildings, and "experience zones" are interesting and entertaining. Make sure to visit the Ninja Kai Kai Tei (ninja house), it is very trippy!
You can even dress up in Edo period clothing and walk around the park / take pictures.

Proper Japanese Disney Land! So much fun. And you can dress up as a samurai, or a local lord complete with a real metal katana(though girls get a sorry version for some reason)!
