Ninjas and kendo in Kyoto: stick fighting for all the family.

Ninjas and kendo in Kyoto: stick fighting for all the family.

Get the kids dressed up like samurai in full fencing gear in Kyoto and they’ll be able to test their physical skills, mental acuity and innate understanding of Zen Buddhist precepts, at this special visit to a local kendo school. Later, further stretch their imagination and knowledge of Japanese culture and history with an excursion to the Iga Uneo Ninja Park. Here the secrets of the incredible ninja warriors are revealed, with plenty of scope for visitor participation, and you’ll all soon be creeping around with a martial arts expression, the way of the warrior informing your every silent step. More fun than you can poke a stick, or throw a star, at.
