For specific appearances in the games, see Edo (disambiguation).

Edo (sometimes referred to as Oedo) is the main setting where the Ganbare Goemon series take place. It is Goemon's hometown.

The town has appeared in most of the games that conform the series and is usually the initial stage where Goemon's journey begins. It is based on the real Japanese capital of Edo (now Tokyo), which was known as such during medieval times.

  • The other name this location is referred to in some games, "Oedo", is most likely a localization mistake, as Oedo is an island in South Korea, whereas the Ganbare Goemon series take place in feudal Japan.
