      Great fun and fascinating ninja training experience
      Of all our great experiences on holiday in Japan, this was one of the best. Our instructor was excellent - informative and also entertaining. After we got changed into ninja gear, he introduced us to ninja/martial arts/chi philosophy and exercises to prepare for training, then taught us various physical, combat and weapons exercises, techniques, etc while also giving us a thorough insight into multiple ninja techniques (I won't go into too much detail, to avoid any spoilers). We loved it.

      Great ninja experience in Kyoto!
      Overall a great experience and really fun. Perhaps more suited to families than solo travellers, but that may be down to the overall group mix I had on the day. Would definitely recommend!

      Highlight of our time in Kyoto! 10/10 recommend
      We had SO much fun and learnt so much in ninja class. Our teacher and her colleague were simply amazing. We were a small group of 5 in total and laughed so much together. You get some really fun photos and videos to go home with too. Highlight of our time in Kyoto and would definitely recommend!!!

      It was a very fun experience filled with knowledge, hands on learning, and some techniques I cannot wait to share with my children (who stayed back in the US during my trip). I would definitely come back for another lesson!

      Ninja lesson is a must do!
      This was an incredible once-in-a-lifetime experience that any visitor to Japan must try! We learned so much about the Ninja way of life, from hand signals to escaping through trap doors. We were even taught how to use weapons like throwing stars, swords, knives on a rope, blow darts, and sickles on a chain. The instructor was very knowledgeable and taught us many other uses of these weapons, such as for climbing walls, farming, and self-defense. Another person took photos and videos and emailed them to us at no extra charge!

      The hour that sneaks right by
      A lovely experience that felt charming from start to finish. it was perfectly engaging with its variety of ninja themed activities that kept the hour cheap. Additionally, photography is mainly taken care of by the dojo, which comes free of cost.

      November2023 NINJA DOJO AND STORE KYOTO
      my visit to the ninja dojo left me with an indescribable good heart energetically but also mystically. not only training in the dojo, but also an amazing performance, a trek to Mount DAIMONJI in Kyoto. As a long-term practitioner of martial arts, I again found something new on a professional and personal level. My fiancee passed everything successfully, even though she is not trained, but she wants to come back with me again. From the bottom of my heart, I recommend it to everyone and not only to those practicing some martial arts. here are a couple of photos from the dojo and from Mount Daimonji above Kyoto.♥️🍀🇯🇵Thank you

    Amazing experience! Patient and knowledgeable instructors. Great with kids (7yo and 10yo). It was one of the highlights of their trip to Kyoto. Their favorite parts were throwing shurikens and using an actual blow dart! I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a fun and unique experience!

    Really well thought out and well run experience. The instructor was very knowledgeable and clearly from a martial arts background. She included a lot of knowledge in the two hours, gave everyone lots of chance to practice what was being taught and made this a thoroughly enjoyable experience. 5 stars 🌟, would definitely recommend 👍

    Recently returned home from spending a month in Japan and this experience was definitely one of the highlights. We were permitted to take as many photos and videos as we liked, and the dojo also had their own photographer who shared the photos and videos she took with us all via google drive after the experience. Our teacher for the day was listed as Chihiro, who was fantastic. She went into fascinating detail about the weapons and combat moves we were introduced to, as well as the history of Ninjas and their lifestyle, and she was also happy to answer any and all questions we had (and we had a fair few). She made the session wonderfully engaging and entertaining, and also spoke great English (always a great bonus). I went for the full two-hour session and I'd highly reccomend it!

    An incredible experience, possibly our favourite so far in Japan.

    Fully dressed in ninja gear we learned about meditation and breathing, fortifying our spirits for protection from enemies within and without!

    We then moved on to ninja walking and had to balance sake bottles on our heads while walking, which was really difficult!

    Ninja hiding, and sword training with real metal ninja and samurai swords. We then moved on to Shuriken ninja star throwing and the sensai recognized that our 11 daughter was doing really well and let her use the metal shuriken as well.

    My favourite training was the blow gun and I got to shoot the darts across the entire store!

    Afterwards they sent us a link to almost 100 photos taken during the lesson.

    Overall an incredible experience and would highly recommend!

    It is one of the most exciting experience I have in a 8-days Kyoto trip. In the 2 hours session, I got to hand-on to many ninja skills and weapons. The throwing Shuriken and blowing darts are my most favourite activities, others are good too. At first, I was thinking that language might be a problem, but then I got a beautiful young lady instructor who can speak very good English, which makes the exprience even better. I think I will come again the next time I come to Kyoto.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this two hour experience. Easily a fun highlight of my trip to Kyoto. I learnt a lot about ninjas and their art. The history and symbolism were engaging and well covered. The weapons were cool - the ninja sword was my favourite - the blowdart was really fun!

    The hosts have been wonderful - they had a patient, humble and fun attitude, which was fitting and added to the experience. They were really kind and accommodating, helped with photos and videos, and spoke great English and gave clear explanations. Even though I came in a bit late, they made me feel welcome from beginning to end.

    I hope to come back. I'm looking forward to an intermediate class on my next trip back to Japan. =)

    To the two wonderful hosts for that day, if you're reading this, thank youuu!

    I was very happy with the hands on ninja lessons. The experience is an excellent mix of traditional martial arts mixed with ninja trickery. Each activity was modified to suit our group with each challenge posing many problems. The instructor had excellent English and was able to do extremely well prepared demonstrations. We were able to participate in a variety of challenging ninja activities ranging from ninja meditation through to sword technique and ninja star throwing. My 15 year old son who is keen on martial arts was very happy with the whole experience.

    This was an amazing and exciting experience into the world of the Ninja. We were taught and performed the moves, stealthness, and used the every weapon of a Ninja. Our group session was comprised of people never used weapons to some that had previous martial arts training. The Sensei was able to make each individual feel relaxed and confident in performing with various weapons.

    I absolutely loved this experience. Being a lifelong fan of all things ninja, this was on my Japan bucketlist.
    There were 6 people in our group, from various backgrounds. I felt this was a good size, as it gave us all the chance to practice every move several times.
    Our Ninja MC Tomoe was a very skilled, very patient instructor. She was clearly well versed in martial arts and weapons usage, and gave very good instruction on all of them.
    As someone with past experience of martial arts, it was good to see her alter her attack speed accordingly, when it was clear myself and some of the others were picking things up quicker, while slowing things down for those who were a bit more hesitant.
    We tried a good mix of weapons. I don't remember the names of all of them.
    The ninja skills such as ninja walking were also good fun to try out.
    Tomoe's level of English was very good, so the class was very easy to understand.
    Only downside would be that it was over far too fast.
    Overall, I had an awesome time and I would recommend it to anyone.
    Thank you very much Ninja Dojo!

    This has truly been the most incredible experience I've ever had! Opting for the 2-hour lesson was a decision I won't forget. The staff went beyond being friendly; they were downright fantastic and made the entire experience enjoyable.

    Learning a diverse range of techniques, delving into the history, and mastering the proper use of weapons and breathing techniques, all while embracing the ninja ways, made for an unforgettable adventure. The full kit provided, coupled with hands-on practice with various weapons, elevated the experience to something truly priceless.

    If you find yourself in Kyoto, this is an absolute must-try. Coming from Ireland, I cherished the opportunity to connect with the sensei and staff. Their profound knowledge and understanding of the authentic ways of the Shinobi added an extra layer of depth to the experience. Trust me, this unique adventure, complete with personalized photos they send you, is an absolute must!
