Excellent Experience!

What a great experience we all had! My boys loved the interactive part and learning the history of the Samurai and ninjas! Would recommend to everyone visiting Kyoto!
Great experience

This was a great experience for us. The guide was very knowledgeable and funny, this helped to make the experiance very pleasent. The exibits were cool, I specifically liked the swords. They are actually for sale, so if you were interested in getting them then you could potentially get them. As a native english speaker the staff was not able to articulate in english information about the swords so that means you would really have to just want it or be able to read Japanese to understand the back story. Ninja training was also fun. Get event for the kids!
