Truly Amazing Experience!! Highly recommend this hidden gem of Japan to grasp the richness of Japans history. The recreations, shows, and hands on learning are top notch.

Whether visiting Japan or looking for something to do on a weekend I strongly encourage check this out and grow in your love for Japans Edo cultural period.

I loved this place. Definitely intended for the young and young at heart. I took my wife and 13yo niece and everyone had a good time. We spent about 4 hours here, and I could have easily spent longer if we weren't completely exhausted from touring Tokyo.

Edomura is a lovely place to go. Authentic to the core, including the habits and language. If you are in Nikko, I would highly recommend that you visit this place. The maze, the Ninja maze, the shows all are worth it. Try the Ninja house only if you can else skip (it will play tricks on your mind, people with balance issues a definite no).
Always love to go back to Nikko Edomura

Tickets are expensive, but they have built a very nice village reflecting Edo period. Staff are very friendly. Kids can participate in samurai or ninja experience. There are many shows. They have basic descriptions and signs in English.

Definitely dress up. I recommend going before 1pm because you might otherwise miss some of the shows while you're getting dressed in the costumes. Note that if you wear a kimono type costume, you cannot go into the ninja building, but there's plenty more to see

Option ① Nikko Edo Wonderland is a great place to learn old Japanese culture. If you are traveling with children, it is definitely worth visiting. We choose 1 course out of 3 plans. This is no.1 plan.
