Edo Wonderland
Edo Wonderland Nikko Edomura (江戸ワンダーランド 日光江戸村, Edo Wandārando Nikkō Edomura) is a Japanese cultural theme park in the Kinugawa Onsen area of Nikkō, Tochigi. The park resurrects and showcases the life and culture of the Edo period. It spans a site area of 49.5 hectares. The park's design is based on the Edo period's golden era known as Genroku. Edo Wonderland hosts a wide variety of Edo period architecture, from rural lodgings to urban samurai residences and government buildings. It is populated by staff in Edo period attire, reenacting the speech and behaviour of Edo era citizens from lower, middle and upper classes. The park has seven theatres featuring traditionally themed shows, including plays, ninja action and oiran shows combined with outdoor live shows, street performances, parades, seasonal festivals and special events. Edo Wonderland also has a range of visitor experiences for adults and children, including ninja workshops, Japanese traditional archery and shuriken throwing.
