This is a fantastic place to visit. However, I would advise that if you intend to travel there, take the bus or a taxi. While the train is doable, we had to go to the general store across the street to buy tickets and the trains do not run frequently. The bus and cabs are frequent and easy to use!
This place is actually super cool. The admission cost might seem pricey but there are SO many cool replicas of historic/famous buildings.
I'd recommend adding it onto a Nikko trip since it's in the area, if you have time to spare.
