Edo Wonderland 日光江戸村

trippy anti-gravity house

Edo Wonderland Nikko Edomura 日光江戸村 is fun even for adults! We bought the “Kinugawa Theme Park Pass” at Tobu Asakusa Station 東武 浅草駅 which included the train fare here and the admission. It was a 2-hour rapid train ride from Asakusa To Shimo-imaichi 下今市 then another 20 minutes from Shimo-imaichi to Kinugawa-onsen 鬼怒川温泉. We then took the 15-minute loop bus from Bus Stop # 3 on the right side of Kinugawa-Onsen Station.

We spent about 4 hours here but wish we had a couple more hours to be able to do more. At first, I was worried that it would be lame, but the place was quite beautiful and even though some things were a bit tacky, it was a lot of fun overall. We had time to watch the water magic show and the grand ninja show and did both the ninja and samurai experience as well as walk around the maze and the anti-gravity house. There were quite a few places to get food and snacks. It was not very busy on a Tuesday afternoon. The staff dressed in Edo-period gear occasionally interacted with the visitors, adding to the experience. Some of the staff did speak a little English.
