Freerunning Through the Streets of a Traditional Japanese Village

Nestled in the mountains of Nikko, Japan – home of famed Shrine and Unesco World Heritage Site Toshogu – you’ll find Edo Wonderland. A theme park like no other, everything including the food, houses, characters and entertainment in town replicate the experience of actually being in Japan during the 17th century Edo era.

Edo Wonderland served as both an inspiration and a backdrop for Jason Paul’s most recent adventure, which sees the German freerunner travel to Japan and join local athletes KENICHI, Zen (Red Bull Art of Motion 2011 participant), YAKUWA and YUUTAROU. Landing in the middle of a 17th century Japanese town, he’s surrounded by startled villagers, swift samurais and a group of ninjas who put his parkour skills to the ultimate test. Watch above.
