Discovering the mysterious Ninja World!!!
duw1203
, Feb 2020
Discovering the mysterious Ninja world with descendants of the Musashi Clan was an incomparable and unique experience. We felt immensely privileged and honoured to have witnessed and practised a multi-centenary art. Our instructor thoroughly guided us through all the Ninja techniques and way of life. It was important for us to have been able to be photographed during our session since memories can easily fade away and having evidences of our experience was essential for us. The venue was very impressive thanks to its decoration and to the atmosphere which were cultivating the mysterious ambience inside the dojo. We warmly thank the team for their commitment and their professionalism and above all, for their generosity during our 90-minute tour. Best wishes to all of them and may the Ninja art endure for the centuries to come. We will be hopefully coming back for a samurai training session in the future.

Thank you very much for taking time to write for us. We feel sad to see a lot of entertainment places try to promote prototype ninja image of movies, but we know people like yourselves come to our place are not expecting just to have fun. Your words encourage us to keep on introducing the timeless wisdom of our ancestors. Thank you so much to have found us and come all the way. All the best.

An Honour and a Privilege to Do This
harleyw286
, Oct 2019
I have a deep passion for traditional weapons and being able to gain a small insight into the ninja arts through this experience is a great honour. The philosophy of family and protection is something that resonates deeply with me as it is an integral part of my own Maori culture and I was amazed to learn that it is one of the core beliefs of ninja. It is awe inspiring how the ninja ancestors took everyday implements and turned them into weapons. As each weapon was shown and explained to me my amazement grew and grew. I thoroughly enjoyed the blindfolded exercise, and learning the truth about the throwing stars and not the Hollywood take on them. The coaching they gave me on how to throw them related to whanau (family), and when I heard that my aim improved. It was these little tips and insights to help that kept on amazing me and my awe for my teachers and the ninja arts grew. They are amazing teachers and I have no hesitation in recommending that anyone, who wants a real insight into ninja arts do this. If you have a passion for traditional weapons and enjoy exploring styles outside of your own, then do this - you will not regret it! If you have not done any type of traditional weapons, but are interested, then this would be perfect for you to get first hand experience by excellent teachers. It was an honour and a privilege to meet you both and learn from you. I am still in awe of what I learnt and still buzzing from my time with you. Domo arigatou gozaimasu どうもございまずいます

Incredible training experience
MalGander
, Oct 2019
I highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting Japan, who wishes to learn about the culture and history of Ninjas from this very hospitable and friendly clan. Vanessa greeted us as planned and was the main English speaker, the two gentleman put on an incredible display of their skills, also training us in such ways allowing us to practice in stimulated scenarios. Over 90 minutes of sheer joy, respect, a little fear but without a doubt the most enjoyable experience we have done in a month touring Japan. Thank you for being such lovely hosts, arigatogozaimashita 🙏 Mal, Phil and Neil (rugby boys 🏉)
icon Response from Host , Oct 2019
The time with big rugby guys was fantastic. We enjoyed training with you. Some people learn fast and when the senior instructor feels it fit, something a bit different takes place... You know, by meeting people like yourselves, we have learned Rugby has very rich culture. Thank you for taking time to come to Japan and then to us.

Both my 12 year old daughter and 14 year old son did this ninja experience. The english guide was very helpful . This was a great cultural experience and highlight for my kids full of fun memories. Both my husband and i were allowed to watch and take photos. A must do experience when travelling in japan for kids .
icon Response from Host , Oct 2019
Thank you. We sincerely hope your kids have gotten more than just having fun. We feel it's our mission to introduce our ways of thinking. Hope the young people get to see our ways of life that a ninja is not a fighter but a quiet person walking the path for harmony. Wishing all the best for you and your kids.

Both the instructor and I enjoyed meeting you and getting to know you. You are courageous to come to our place by yourself and you made us very happy. That's exactly what we expect from an excellent kunoichi,(female ninja) who can assume a leadership role. Wish you good luck.

I took the training with my 8-year old son. We dont speak Japanese, however, we didnt feel like we were lacking any communication as the Ninja team did a great job speaking English. The experience started with a demonstration by the Master Ninja. It was amazing gave us goose bumps. Then the team introduced us to the history of ninja and overviewed the various tools and weapons. We had hands-on exercise in ninja walk, sward fighting using safe wooden mock-ups for swards, shuriken throwing, and use of blow gun. In the end, there was a mission where we would need to sneak into a castle and avoid guards on the way back. The 90 minutes flew by fast. It was a fun, safe, and entertaining experience, one of the best activities we participated in Tokyo. My 8-year old son was fascinated. Two thumbs up! And Thank You to the Ninja Team!

We booked this for our 3 boys: 12, 14 and 16 and they absolutely loved it - it was definitely one of the highlights of our 2-week Japan tour. I and my husband were allowed to stay for the first few minutes while the ninja instructor did a demonstration of moves with his swords beautiful and exciting to watch and after that we were asked to leave. The boys were given robes to wear and were shown basic fighting and stealth moves, and shown authentic ninja weaponry and gadgets. The whole thing was taken very seriously which made it even more appealing. It was authentic, really interesting and utterly compelling. The translator was a delightful lady who took loads of photos for the boys on their various devices. Wholeheartedly recommend this for older children there must be a minimum age because of the weapon handling, teenagers and young adults.

When you walk into an old office building your first thought might be "what the heck is this?" But it's a blast. Overview of ninja tools and weapons, combat, throwing stars, blow gun, with lots of history to boot. Great translator along with the Ninja. It's HOT inside in summer so be prepared!

This was a great adventure for the kids and in hindsight i should have done it myself. Not flashy or touristy so don't go expecting this as it is as close to a Mr Miyagi experience as you will find. A family Dojo that can trace their lineage back to the time when the Samurai ruled Japan. Ninja Skills and a friendly atmosphere I would recommend this.

This experience was one of the highlights of our trip! We met decendants of real life Ninja's, learned about the history of Ninjas and practiced actual rituals and skills. We dressed in Ninja attire and were taught about their lives and activities. It was presented very professionally and yet it was so much fun and interesting. We've recommended it to many of our friends.

The ninja experience is great and totally worth for those who want to try something different in Tokyo. We booked a time for 2 people and we were the only ones there, so we could enjoy it a lot not sure if they mix groups. By the time we booked the tour, there were other similar tours in Viator that explicitly said that a guide would pick you up at Tabata station. On the email for this one, there were instructions to get to the dojo, so that's what we did. When we got there, the place seemed to be empty, so we said Sumimasen! and the ninja opened the door for us. Then we got to know that we were actually supposed to meet the guide at the station, and not come to the dojo directly. This wasn't clear in the instructions, and we believe this may have offended them, so the beginning was a bit sour. However, with time the guide/translator and the ninja showed to be very friendly people, and we had a great time with the lessons. While we were practicing, the guide had our camera and was constantly taking pictures and shooting videos, so we have great memories of the tour! The ninja speaking in Japanese and translated by the guide was telling many things about the history of the ninja.

It was really fun and interesting experience! We not only get to hands on with some of the weapons and moves, i think most importantly we get to gain a lot of knowledge about Ninjas. Our master also showed us a lot of powerful moves and our translator Miyabi was also a super cute and helpful ninja. Her english is really good too. I will strongly recommend this tour for anyone who likes to try something unique that you can only find in Japan!
