Back in 2010, we went to Edo Wonderland after visiting the Nikko Tosho-gu Shrine.

And the other

It rained that day and the park was pretty empty but we still had a good time.

One of the theaters, I think.

We saw a ninja show and a traditional water show that you could photograph (non-flash) while you watched. They actually encourage you to. However, I didn’t like any of the photos I took.

It’s a cool place if you’re in the neighborhood with the family.

  1. I wish I’d known this place was so close to Nikko. Although I’d heard of Edo Wonderland I mistakenly thought it was towards Kamakura. I’ll have to go the next time I’m in Tokyo.
