It was a fantastic experience! Love it and would recommend it to everyone. I’ve been to the Edo park in Kyoto but this one gave a different atmosphere. The village is small and people are super friendly!!! There’s a lot of things to do here, like experiencing Edo textile weaves or the ninja training. You just need to pay a small extra amount of money.
The shows are free of charge, which was great since I enjoyed all of them. However, these shows do not have English explanations (except the ninja show), so maybe it's a little bit confusing for those who don't speak Japanese.
The only minus point is that there aren't many shops here and no convenient stores, so not many choices available. But in general, I still want to give this place a 5-star.

Another fun place to go during your visit to Nikko! Make sure you visit all of the attractions. The Oiran procession must not be missed. And please check the weather. Rain makes the experience much less fun.

Great place. The shows are also interesting to watch. Activities are also quite engaging. Great place to spark children's interest in history

A fantastic place which will take you back to Edo period of Japanese history. As if you are in a real city. You can meet local people doing their daily routine as they were doing it a century ago. And different performances (Geisha, Ninja, etc) are mesmerising. Highly recommended for everyone.

An excellent place with extremely friendly staff and high quality shows. Our son (and we!) thoroughly enjoyed the shows and games (archery, shuriken throwing, etc.). We’ve been many times and will be back again.🥷
