Edo Wonderland near Nikko is a wonderfully old-fashioned theme park offering more than a glimpse into life in old Edo. As well as live performances which include sword fights and other staged combat with incredibly talented ninja actors, the park also celebrates several seasonal festivals. Actors in traditional costumes wander the old-style streets, giving a real feel of the old Japan, and activities are available for those who want to try their hand at traditional games and the like.
Entrance costs 4,500 yen for adults and 2,300 yen for children. The park is open from 9a.m. to 5p.m. (4 p.m. in the winter) and last entry is an hour before closing. There is a free shuttle 5 times daily between Edo Wonderland and JR Nikko Station.
