With his help, you will become a real Ninja just like the one who really existed 600 years ago.

At the beginning of the plan, you will get your own Ninja name and spend the day as a real Ninja with the name. You will even play a little skit at the end!

It is not rare that tourists visiting Himeji Castle ask you to take photos with you during the experience.
