Nikko Edomura (Edo Wonderland) is a history theme park recreating Japanese town life during the Edo Period (1603-1868). The park is really a small town built in Edo style architecture and populated by townspeople in period costume, and has been used as the setting for period tv dramas. Park guests have the opportunity to dress up as well (costumes can be rented for a fee) and tour the town's historically based shops and museums, participate in games and see live shows and theater.

There are various shops and restaurants around Edo Wonderland, most of which sell souvenirs such as teapots, woodblock prints and toy weapons. Other shops however, such as the Blacksmith and Armor Repair Shop, are replica storefronts that show how period craftsmen worked. In addition, there are two wax museums, Kodenmacho Jail House and Kira-Kozukenosuke Residence which show grisly scenes of prison life, torture, battle and vengeance.

About town
Ninja Trick Maze

Other attractions around town, dubbed Experience Zones, are amusements such as a Haunted Temple filled with Japanese spirits and demons, and a House of Illusion where the walls seem to bend and balls roll uphill. One of the best attractions is the Ninja Trick Maze, which is a human sized labyrinth that is definitely a challenge to escape from.

Finally, visitors to Edo Wonderland should not miss one of the park's live shows held at various theaters around the town. Performances vary from comic shows and traditional water magic, to live action, including the popular Grand Ninja Theater, where sword battles, magic, and martial arts are part of the show. The shows are held daily, with multiple performances each day.
