Because of corona the park was very empty and all artist weared masks and doesn't recognized us because we were tourists. No one ask us to come in and try the the things their offering, only locals were invited to come in! We're even forbidden to see the shows because we had no masks with us, but where should we get one, everything was sold out! We made the best of the day, rented an samurai outfit and took some nice shots. Therefore the 3 stars.

Oh how I missed this place already. It was a very fascinating experience! Lots of beautiful scenery to take photos in. With very friendly staff members and affordable price!

Great immersive experience but quite overpriced as you have to pay extra for activities despite already paying for admission. Suggest to visit here after staying overnight in Nikko as if you come from Tokyo it takes 3 hours so you will reach closer to Noon which means it will be hard to fully enjoy this park as it closes at 4pm... The Ninja show is a must-watch and definitely get costume rental!

Neat place but expensive for what it is, especially since many activities you need to pay extra for. Our 4-year old enjoyed dressing up as a ninja and interacting with the park characters and the ninja show was fun. While enjoyable, I definitely wouldn't go too far out of your way to go here.

Superb experiences. I reached there too late, so I was not able to experiences all area and shows. I would suggest anyone to arrive early morning and first look at the timetable given when you bought the ticket. Then arrange your times probably so you may watch all shows offered by the Wonderland. I will definitely want to revisit this place if I have chance.
