Edo Wonderland is a huge theme park that simulates a town from the Edo period in a realistic manner, where you can enjoy and experience Edo culture. At the henshin-dokoro, you can change into a kimono and transform into an Edo citizen. You can also try some programs designed to give you real Edo period experiences, such as being a samurai or a ninja. These programs are perfect for families as they are available for both children and adults. Events featuring ninjas, a theater where you can enjoy traditional performing arts, a yakata boat cruise, and the shuriken (a ninja weapon) and Japanese archery training grounds are also popular. You can enjoy the Edo atmosphere in the village where Edo townspeople, such as samurais with topknots and merchants, walk around.
The park also holds seasonal events that are unique to Japan such as O-Shogatsu (New Year), Hinamatsuri (girl's day), Tanabata Festival and more. There are restaurants that offer Edo-style dining and souvenir shops that sells ukiyoe and items modeled on the park's Nyanmage mascot. It is the last stop on a 15-minute bus ride on a Tobu Bus bound for Nikko Edomura from Kinugawa-onsen station.
