© Grape Japan 4 Tokyo Ninja Hideouts Wannabe Shinobi Need to Experience 2018-09-07 Fri 2018-09-07 Fri Ninjas continue to capture the imagination of overseas visitors as one of the most badass aspects of Japanese history. There are certain prefectures of historical importance with deep links to the ninjas, but sadly they are a bit out of the way for the regular tourist. For those without time to make these ninja pilgrimages, there's some inner city experiences that you can take part in instead. If you’re visiting or live in Tokyo, put on your best all-black ensemble, because we’re about to get sneaky up in here. Ninja Attractions in Tokyo 1. Ninja Trick House, Shinjuku View this post on Instagram Ninja Trick House in Tokyoさん(@ninja_tokio)がシェアした投稿 - 2016年 9月月2日午後5時44分PDT Uncover all the secrets of the Ninja Trick House as you explore, and learn ninjutsu skills as you go. Only 12 people can get stealthy per tour so it’s recommended to reserve online in advance. Address: Daiichi Wako Bld. 4F 2-28-13 Kabuki-cho, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo Ninja Trick House Website Price: 1,100 yen per person (no entrance fee for children under 3) (Closed Tuesday and Wednesday) 2. Ninja Akasaka Restaurant, Akasaka View this post on Instagram ninja_akasakaさん(@ninja_akasaka_official)がシェアした投稿 - 2018年 2月月21日午前7時03分PST Part haute cuisine and part fantasy adventure, Ninja Akasaka is more of an experience than a meal. Once you duck under the curtain at the door, the theme is fully realised. All the interior, every prop is ninja-fied and no one breaks character even for a second. There’s a lot of campy, tongue-in-cheek fun too such as ‘ninja training’ and magic shows. It’s not a cheap meal, but it’s certainly an entertaining one. Address: Tokyu Plaza Akasaka 1F, 2-14-3 Nagatacho, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo Ninja Akasaka Website Price: Not so cheap, courses start from about 6000 yen (Reservation recommended) 3. Ninja Cafe Sinobazu, Akihabara View this post on Instagram 忍者喫茶 不忍カフェ 藤林アンさん(@ninja_akihabara)がシェアした投稿 - 2018年 5月月22日午前10時01分PDT The concept of this cafe seems to be a mix of a maid cafe and a ninja cafe. It’s staffed by female ninjas in historically inaccurate sexy outfits. But don’t get any ideas, because these ladies aren’t there just to pander after customers. They conduct awesome ninja displays in which you can witness them putting their fists through tiles and showing their mastery of light-up nun chucks. You can get in on the action too by dressing as a ninja for a photo, or rent the disguise for the whole day to sneak around Akihabara. Address: Tsuchiya Bld.2F-4F, 1-2-3, Sotokanda, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo Ninja Cafe Sinobazu (Shinobazu) Website Price: First half an hour is 600 yen for men and 100 yen for women and each customer must buy at least one drink (Closed Mondays) 4. Ninja Samurai Dojo, Asakusa View this post on Instagram daikanさん(@hisashi33)がシェアした投稿 - 2018年 8月月4日午後5時50分PDT Do some hands on training to learn the ways of the legendary ninjas.
