While traveling to Kyoto we decided to try an activity the children would enjoy more than walking and temple-visits. We were very happy to meet Sensei Ichikawa who welcomed us into his dojo and instructed us in the ways of the Ninja. This was an unforgettable experience for the kids and myself. We highly recommend the visit to anyone who ever wondered what it is like to be a Ninja and to learn a bit about the weapons and ways of the Ninja.

Whilst on our tour in Japan my husband and myself had the opportunity to do Ninja training. The young lady was a excellent teacher and informative with very good English. We learnt about Ninja ways, how to move like a Ninja. Got to throw shuriken stars, blow darts, how to use swords, role play and much more. Another lady took photos and emailed them to us the same day. We also took videos and photos. Would highly recommend this activity.

My husband and sons (ages 8 and 12) had the best time doing this! They said it was the favorite part of the trip. The master's English is very good and he created a welcoming atmosphere. My family was able to learn ninja moves, practice throwing actual ninja weapons, and use real ninja swords. I was allowed to watch and take pictures even though I wasn't participating. If your family is interested in ninjas, this is a must do!

We came as a family of five (mum, dad and boys aged 12, 10 and 7) and we had so much fun. From the moment we put on the ninja outfits we were already having a great time. And then we got to try so many things - ninja stealth, secret doorways, shuriken throwing, blow darts, swords, daggers to name a few. Highly recommended if you are in the area. This one is really fun for the whole family.

I was lucky enough to have Izo to coach me 1 on 1.

He was so informative and really opened my eyes to what a ninjas main purpose was. I got to experience all of their weaponry as well as their tactics of movement.

Thank you very much, it was a great hour and I highly recommend this to ANYONE. Adults will find it informative and educational as well as fun and it’s active enough for teenagers to also enjoy.

Thanks again,

Tom

Our family had a great time learning about all things Ninja. Highlights were the shuriken throwing & blow darts. Jin was a great teacher & kept us all engaged, including our 10 & 13 year olds.

We were the only 2 people there, so we lucked out for a private lesson! So fun learning the ways of the ninja from their pre-work rituals to many uses of the sword. This is a must do when visiting Kyoto plus some great memories to take home!

My partner and I had heard about Ninja Dojo and Store from a friend who had been a few months previously but had forgotten to book something. Managed to get a last minute booking in for the afternoon of the following day and luckily enough we were the only two in that session! What a session! We both learnt so so much and had a lot of fun doing so. Cannot recommend this enough to anyone visiting! Plenty of photo opportunities too. Get on it!

My husband and I did this class while in Kyoto and had a lot of fun! We learned so many different Ninja traditions/skills, from breathing exercises, blow dart and throwing star practice, swordsmanship, and history, it was one of the highlights of our trip. We were lucky and the 1 hour lesson was private, which was great because we had the instructor to ourselves for questions and demonstrations. The instructor was super knowledgable, skilled, and patient for making the experience special. You move through a lot of different things in the 1 hour, so you aren't bored, and it was such a fun and experiential activity to do together. We'd recommend it, as 2 adults, we had a blast.
