My wife and I and our two daughters (aged 13 and 10) thoroughly enjoyed the two hour class. Numbers are kept small so everyone gets plenty of time to try each of the techniques and weapons. The instructor was friendly, earnest and informative. An activity such as this is perfect for families with kids aged 8 and up. Kyoto is full of worthy historical sites but when you can’t look at another temple, this is a great way to try something different.

My wife, son and i participated in a session on the Monday morning and had a blast. The lessons and experience were both informative and a hell of a lot of fun. You get a good introductory understanding of the art of being a Ninja and have fun at the same time. The staff are very welcoming and willing to answer any questions.

I would definitely do it again

Our family of four (2 adults (in our 50s), 2 teenagers) took the 2-hour lesson at the Ninja Dojo and Store. I am so glad that we did. The time flew by. We learned so much from our instructor -- both about the history of Ninjas in Kyoto and the weapons they used. We started by dressing in Ninja garb; our kids loved it. We covered so much in two hours -- using real and fake weapons such as Ninja Stars, knives, blow dart guns, ropes, even how to use chopsticks in an attack. Our instructor's English was perfect, and he was very patient. With his good looks, long ponytail and calm, stealthy Ninja walk, he could be a movie star! I cannot recommend this enough; it was one of the highlights of our trip to Japan. After the lesson, they have lots of things for sale if you are interested (tourist ninja-related keepsakes but also real ninja stars etc., there was no pressure to buy, just interesting to look at). By the way, when we arrived, the taxi driver couldn't find the store -- it's on the second floor and not obvious when you are in the taxi.

Wide variety of real, practice and imitation weapons with knowledgeable and skillful staff.

I did the 2 hour introductory training session and it was well worth it. The instructor managed to fit a lot of different weapon skills into the session, ranging from swords to shuriken to rope. I was with a fairly small group so there was a good amount of individual attention.

Afterwards we were allowed to take pictures with any of the store stock weapons, still dressed up in the ninja attire, which was a nice touch.
