The castle and playhouse are in one are where you learn about ninja tricks and their way of life. It was fun experience but more tailored towards children. There was no English translation for most of the tricks being shown which is something to note...More

If you get bored of Temples and historical museums in Japan, you should visit this museum. Must attend the tour and show of ninjas (400 JPY extra ticket fee) During show camera is prohibited for record.

We only had time to see the museum and not the show. The museum is very educational and has some fun facts. More entertaining for kids than for adults.

From Nagoya to the museum, the journey took approximately 3 hours. Since I’m not in a hurry and plan to just leisurely enjoy the journey, the long hour doesn’t really bother me that much. I bought Kintetsu Railway Pass therefore I can enjoy unlimited Kintentsu...More

This is an amazing place especially if you are a fan of ninjas. I took a walk from Iga Ueno station to save money. Not really recommended as it was quite a long walk. I was totally amazed by all the trapdoors and hidden traps...More

A quick search for the Iga-ryu Ninja Museum would bring up wonderful images of an idylic Ninja House and some amazing people in costume. What it doesn't is the travel time of more than 2 hours to and from this place. You would likely spend...More

No need to reserve or book ahead. But make sure to look up the time of the shows as it varies per day.

I looked up Koka Village, and if you're near there and going to visit it, I suggest just skip this. They are basically the same thing except Im not sute if Koka has the Ninja show.
