A theme park that you can experience the Edo period
“Edo Wonderland” (Nikko Edo Mura) is a history theme park in Nikko city, Tochigi prefecture. There is a barrier at the entrance; going through the barrier and proceeding through the city, the world of Edo spreads there.

“Edo Wonderland” has a mascot character, “Nyan-Mage,” popular even for souvenirs. “Nyan-Mage” is a resident like a white cat of chonmage head and is well visible from afar. Since the souvenir of “Nyan-Mage” is very popular, let’s get a souvenir of “Nyan-Mage” cute by all means at a souvenir shop before returning.
What you have to do to enjoy “Edo Wonderland” the most is “wearing the costumes of characters.” When you arrive at “Edo Wonderland,” it is recommended to turn into an Edo people. Since you can transform into an Edo by “Transformer Jiku,” let’s slip time from the Edo period figure.
