WOW!!! possibly the best experience we had in japan. all thanks to the tour translator, we were running late and showed up at meeting point 15 minutes late, but tour translator still waited for us. she walked us to the ninja school which was a 5 minute walk. and proceeded to learn ninjaness. very intense at the beginning but ninja lightened up after performing for us. after ninja school was over translator gave us a tour of ueno park and asakusa. she was extremly nice and very helpful. she made the whole experience a 5 star. unfortunately i cant remember her name.

Had a great time learning the art of being a ninja. The teacher and interpreters were fantastic, and the activities were excellent.

This was one of the best experiences I had while staying in Tokyo. Everyone one involved from the translator to the instructor were extremely polite and helpful. I would recommend this to anyone interested in learning about the ninja history!!

Ninja school was one of those experiences that will never be forgotten, without hesitation I would give it 10/10. The ninja master was both encouraging and supportive. I would do it again and if they had a longer course I would do that as well. It gave a glimpse of ancient / traditional Japan and how those values still influence Japan today.

Great class. We learned about the history of Ninja and then practiced as one. Throwing stars, blow darts and swords. Had a blast. Translators were great.

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.

Great time for my 18 year old son. He was the only one there so no waiting around. As other reviewers have said it was a lot of fun.
