How to Get There
There are Tobu buses that run between Kinugawa Onsen Station and Edo Wonderland. It's about a 20-minute bus ride.
There are also buses running from Nikko Station and from Fujiya Kanko Center in Nikko , but they run less frequently. Buses from Nikko typically take 30 to 40 minutes.
Attractions to enjoy at Edo Wonderland
The theme park hosts many attractions for all ages, including ninja training, the ninja maze and house, the Edo technology museum, acting performances, and Edo street food.
Become part of the Edo period
The best way to enjoy Edo Wonderland is to become a part of it by choosing your role in Edo life. You can have professionals transform you into samurai, ninja, princesses, or any other members of Edo society. Be careful not to cause any problems; the Edo period police known as the Shinsengumi are always on the watch with a sword ready in hand.
Heart pounding ninja action
Edo Wonderland hosts many attractions, but the ninja show is a must see for everyone. It is a 30-minute drama with lights, sounds, and high-speed fighting that encompasses the entire theatre. The show is included in the price of the entrance ticket. There are only a few showings in one day, so make sure to plan ahead of time.
