As the name implies, this family orientated tour will take you back over 400 years into the past, when the Shoguns (feudal warlords) and Daimyos (their lords) ruled over Japan. This village divided into 5 different areas that reflect the era of years gone by, is the perfect setting to forget your normal self and live like an Edo citizen for a day. Walk the streets dressed as a Samurai Warrior, complete with a topknot hair, or a fully made up Geisha, whilst the children can choose to be Ninjas or Okappiki (Edo policeman). Along the way you will get to learn traditional games and sports such as archery or throwing darts which will hone your skills and count towards becoming a ‘certified’ ninja. This is a great day out for children, but we are confident adults will have a fun time, too.
