I took the training with my 8-year old son. We dont speak Japanese, however, we didnt feel like we were lacking any communication as the Ninja team did a great job speaking English.
The experience started with a demonstration by the Master Ninja. It was amazing gave us goose bumps.
Then the team introduced us to the history of ninja and overviewed the various tools and weapons.
We had hands-on exercise in ninja walk, sward fighting using safe wooden mock-ups for swards, shuriken throwing, and use of blow gun. In the end, there was a mission where we would need to sneak into a castle and avoid guards on the way back.
The 90 minutes flew by fast. It was a fun, safe, and entertaining experience, one of the best activities we participated in Tokyo. My 8-year old son was fascinated. Two thumbs up! And Thank You to the Ninja Team!
Amazing tour. The English-speaking guide had a lot of patience with our children who got to practice all sorts of fun skills and learn about the history of ninjas! Highly recommended for adults and children alike.
This experience was above and beyond any expectations I had. We were very pleased with it. As a matter of fact, my 17 year old said for him, it was highlight of our trip. Thank you for the exciting ninja experience. Highly recommended.
Interpreter Sakura was awesome. Met us promptly at the train station and walked us to the dojo. Lesson was a great mix of history and instruction on the mental and physical aspects of ninja training. Interactive elements were super fun.
