Not worth going. They are not yet prepared for people who do not speak Japanese. Virtually no one speaks English in the park. You will not understand any show that is the important thing about this place the rest of the activities are paid and you will not understand them very well except the “Samurai school” where you can sign up to learn how to use the karana or the bow and arrow in a course 40 minutes
