This show was part of our tour on our way to Kyoto, It is a very old placed. This is actually more for fans of Ninja. They have a very small museum and a couple of minutes show were they won't let you videotape or take pictures. After show is over they give you some tickets to do the star... More

This was one of my favorite places I visited on a two week adventure in Japan. The museum itself seemed very average, but the ninja house, ninja show and castle were all amazing!! With trap doors and secret hiding weapon stashes under the floor boards, and the odd ninja star zipping by.. this place had me wide eyed and fully... More

We took a day trip from Kyoto to Iga, this is one location where bullet trains don't help, after 2 hours and 4 train changes, we finally arrived (could be worth hiring a car, in reality it's only around 50km from Kyoto - just no direct rail line). The local train service is brilliant we boarded the ninja train for... More

This place is definitely off the beaten tourist track but if you are interested in ninja's this is the place to go learn about them. They offer a tour of an original ninja house where they show you some of the hidden features in the home and how they were used as well as some of the ninja weapons. During... More

A fun ninja show and a tour round a ninja house showing off fake walls and weapon stashes and things. Really good fun!

Naturally while in Japan, I had to learn about ninjas. I took a day trip from Osaka to visit one of the historical homes of a ninja clan. Even before you arrive at the museum, the local train has ninja mannequins hiding in the luggage racks and shuriken-themed decorations. There are two main attractions which are paid for separately (but... More

Price is correct and the staff friendly The presentation of the ninja house was funny and full of surprises. The rest of the museum provide a large amount of information about ninjas (lifestyle, weapons, origines,...) wich is nice for your own knowledge. If you are looking for something to do around Iga, it's a good idea.

Area consists of a museum, an arena for ninja show and an area to experience throwing the ninja star. We have a experience to dress up "partially" in ninja costume prior to the visit to the museum. The show was just 15 mins, looks simple and easy. But don't underestimate the skill need. They threw the ninja star with ease,... More

The staff was very nice. Visiting the museum house was fun. There were a short tour where some cool features of the house were shown. A pity we missed the show.
