Highlights of Asakusa store

This is the place where the Ninja Experience Cafe was founded, that it is!
The wooden door at the entrance is made very heavy as a challenge to visitors, and is a "door of training". What was difficult to open on the way there, you will surely be able to open on the way back after completing your training and becoming a great ninja.
Thirty-nine Shigaraki-ware raccoon dogs and a red torii gate welcome you.
A large wall painting of a ninja, Japanese swords, koban, hanging scrolls, and many other Japanese-style interior decorations make the cafe a perfect photo spot.
Please change into a ninja costume and take as many memorable photos and videos as you like!

Closing days <January 2024>

Experience in Temple - special option only at Asakusa

Asakusa store offers a special option to experience some trainings in the temple. If you would like to do so, please let us know when you make your reservation.

We rent the main hall and a Japanese-style room at Asakusa Jusenin Temple located only a 1-minute walk from us.

Immersing yourself in Ninja training with a clear mind in the crisp air will surely be a memory that you can only have here!
Experience the mindfulness of "Zen".

Sword training in Temple option

The three ninja training sessions included in our course are usually held in Asakusa store, but one of them, the sword training session, can be experienced in the temple.
You are free to take photos and videos of themselves swinging the sword.
