  • Noboribetsu Date Jidaimura in Hokkaido Japan: An Edo Wonderland and Cultural Park
  • The historic village of Noboribetsu Date Jidaimura, also known as Edo Wonderland, takes you back to the Edo-period of Japanese culture, one of the most peaceful times in Japanese history.

    The park resembles the era’s old Japanese town, from its carefully structured architecture, down to its townspeople wearing the traditional clothing of kimonos, samurais, and ninjas. Experience the traditional life during the Edo era that was once lived by its people at Edo Wonderland! 

    The village is composed of historical shops and areas for activities, games, and theater shows. Start your experience by renting some costumes at Utsuroi-Kan and change into kimonos, samurais, or ninjas before taking photos around the park.
