You need to pre-book the tour and pay entrance fees. I didn’t get to visit since it’s full for the day but walked around the vicinities. It’s quiet and peaceful. Whilst there is no ninja here per se, it’s a temple for Buddhist to pray....More
Enjoyed visiting the ninja temple. Had to reserve ahead of time. Only given an explanatory booklet so you follow a museum staff leading the Japanese tourists while reading the guide. Missed somethings as a result. Can't help but felt they could do a better job...More

Sorry but we had parking through our ryokan and walked there as it was only 20 mins away or so. There is parking, I believe up near Kanazawa Castle, although not much. If you are staying in town, your best bet is to take the bus to a central location and walk from there to diggerent destinations.
