Very cool experience. A sense of wonder enveloped me from the moment I approached the nondescript dojo. There's a chance to buy some cool ninja items afterwards, too. FYI: The tour guide translates everything the ninja says (if you don't speak Japanese).
Really good activity. I was initially worried the it would be too cheesy or would pander to tourists too much. However our instructor had the right balance of history, fun and hands on experience. Our instructor didn't take himself too seriously either which made the whole thing more enjoyable.
One thing to note, the instructor does not speak much English but out interpreters did a great job throughout the entire session.
Booked this especially for my teenage son and although they found the location of the session a bit of a surprise (its in a slightly industrial area) both he and my husband really enjoyed their session.
Highly recommend this experience if you have some time spare in Tokyo. When booking I was a bit concerned that it would be a bit silly and gimmicky, but the time we spent in the dojo was anything but. We learned about the weapons and techniques of a ninja before getting to have a go ourselves. Informative, fun and I can now defend myself with a chopstick, can't say fairer than that.
This is fun and good team building. It is even more fun if you know people in your group.
Great tour! Went with a 15yr and 14yr kids. They enjoyed it very much. Initially, we thought it might be very touristy but turns out it's very realistic and informative and fun. Sense I was serious but very obliging and patient. The whole environment and atmosphere was great and dispelled a lot of typical myths about ninja that we picked up from the movies. We now know how to properly throw shurikens, use the blowgun and understand a lot more about other weapons, techniques and philosophy a out ninja. Great experience and highly recommended.
An interesting, educating and entertaining morning. Enjoyed the history and the ninja stars muchly! A unique cultural experience.
