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

We stopped in to get out of the rain. This is a small ninja museum that didn't have a ton of exhibits but was worth a 15 min stop.

Alloted times to get in and if you miss it, then you need to wait another one hour for the next tour to start. No photos or talking during the tour. Lame. Very disappointed

Well it’s not really an escape but a guided tour of the ancient temple named for its maze of hidden doors, stairways and passageways. The temple is about 10min walk from the Nagamachi Samurai District and is nestled upon small cobblestone streets. The temple itself...More

Our hotel made the booking for us to avoid any possible language complications. The mystique of Ninja or Samurai can assure you of crowds, so that's one reason why you need to book. The other is for crowd control as you're led through the amazing...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... More
