This area is built like old Japan. They have several shows with ninja, mazes, action with sword fights. People are friendly, they have translations in English, Korean, Chinese too. It was a quick trip but fun!

Nice place to visit but be prepared that not many staff speak English. All their shows and performances are in Japanese but they provide tourists an English translation of the story. Quite expensive for the entrance fee but good place to visit if you have...More
