Had a fabulous time at the Ninja Trick House in Shinjuku. Highly recommend for Ninja Fans. Learn the difference between a ninja and samurai, sword tricks, ninja star throws and learn hidden tricks of the ninja. Great fun in a small or large group.
Located in a Shinjuku`s Kabukicho, and a short walk from the Samurai Museum, climb four flights of stairs and walk through a tiny Fushimi Inari that leads you to the NinjaTrick House. Browse through their collection of Ninja stars, swords and manga prints in their entrance/gift shop then watch a short video on the history of the Ninja.
Enter the sword room to learn the ways the ninja made best use of their weapons and surroundings; find hidden compartments, tatami mat shields, umbrella swords and more. Move on to the next room to practice your sword swing and ninja star throw. Kids and adults will love the 40 minutes of ninja fun. Combine with the Samurai Museum for a great day activity. Reservations recommended.
