Purchase a ticket to enter the famous Edo Wonderland in the beautiful city of Nikko Japan's Tochigi Prefecture! You’ll have a fun and educational experience inside because you’ll learn all there is to know about one of the most defining eras of Japan. You’ll travel back in time just by walking around the theme park, which is a reconstructed town modeled after traditional Edo architecture.

There’s even a work experience for kids where they can learn how to be Edo ninjas, samurais, and policemen. You can even taste some authentic Edo cuisine at the various restaurants in the park, at your own expense! If you’re looking forward to learn about Japanese history, then visiting this theme park is a must.
