If you get bored of Temples and historical museums in Japan, you should visit this museum. Must attend the tour and show of ninjas (400 JPY extra ticket fee) During show camera is prohibited for record.

From Nagoya to the museum, the journey took approximately 3 hours. Since I’m not in a hurry and plan to just leisurely enjoy the journey, the long hour doesn’t really bother me that much. I bought Kintetsu Railway Pass therefore I can enjoy unlimited Kintentsu...More

No need to reserve or book ahead. But make sure to look up the time of the shows as it varies per day.

I looked up Koka Village, and if you're near there and going to visit it, I suggest just skip this. They are basically the same thing except Im not sute if Koka has the Ninja show.
