Throwing ninja stars, mastering sword tricks, and learning the ins and outs of undercover espionage are all part and parcel of a visit to Shinjuku's Ninja Trick House.
Located in the busy district of Kabukicho, a short stroll from the popular Samurai Museum and a hit robot-themed restaurant, the Ninja Trick House is hidden on the fourth floor of a small building down a back alley. It's tricky to find, but worth the effort.
Once inside, you'll pass under a passageway of vermillion torii gates, immediately transporting you worlds away from the neon of the city. Wait in the traditional-style tatami mat room and it won't be long before you are greeted by your ninja guide, who will take you on a scavenger hunt and teach you about ninja history, all while arming you with an arsenal of ninja skills and secrets. This intimate experience is limited to four guests at a time, so be sure to book ahead to avoid disappointment.
