Do you know the “Ninja” was a secret agent or mercenary specialized in unorthodox warfare in feudal Japan ? The functions of the ninja included espionage, sabotage, infiltration, and assassination, and open combat in certain situations. Now is your chance to see what it takes to be one!
The art of ninjutsu is more than learning the physical skills of the martial arts. It is also finding your inner self through physical conditioning, meditation, and discipline.
With the practice of meditation one develops key elements of increased awareness and detachment while increasing his/her sense of inner peace. It is through meditation that ninjas learn how to reach the “Ku”(no-self, void), and to control the energy called “Ki” which is the essential life force existing in all things in the universe.
Kujikiri is a series of nine simbolic hand gestures. It invokes the spiritual and mental strength. The hand signs are believed to be able to channel energy. The hand signs were taken from the practices of the early buddhists. They are used to build confidence and strength in the practitioner. They are also believed to enhance one’s senses of danger and enable one to foresee death.

4. The elective training
Our training menu is made up based on the idea of Gorin (The Five Element Code). According to the old mountain buddhism that our ancestors followed, the universe is made with five basic elements; earth ,water, wind, fire and sky(or void) and their transitions. Seeking to get the “ki” energies of these elements, the training is divided into five categories, such as earth training (basic empty-hand combat skill).

I had a great tour with Aimu, getting to visit all the locations that were suggested on the itinerary. Slightly unfortunate that some of them were closed (due to Covid-19) but Aimu just found more locations to visit on the go which suited me perfectly fine, as I like to just sort of explore randomly. Her knowledge on the history of where we went was fascinating and meant I learnt more about the areas then if I was alone. I also got to try a variety of different types of food. After the tour Aimu provided me with more places I could visit while I was in Osaka which was really helpful. Aimu was really fun to talk to and spend the day with (her English is excellent). I would highly recommend booking a tour with her.
Thank you very much for the nice comment and also for having me as a guide during this hard moment. I hope to see you again after all this things calmed down. Stay safe and please come again!
Kaori is fantastic. We are a family of 2 adults, 2 kids from HI. Kids are 8 and 6. Kaori adjusted skillfully to everyone's wishes and we got to see, learn and taste so much. If we go back to this area, we will hire her again! Wonderful experience.
The one day tour around the Aokigahara Forest (including the Wind and Ice cave) was amazing. The beauty of the place is unique. Regarding Tomomi, she was such a nice and helpful. All the explanations provided by Tomomi during the tour made the experience really interesting and wonderful. Highly recommend. Tomomi, thank you for the tour!
We spent one day on Sado Island with Fujiko. She was engaging and informative as we drove through different regions of the island, toured a sake brewery, took a tub boat ride, met a nationally famous sword craftsman, and enjoyed a nice local lunch. My only regret was that the island needs more than one day and we weren’t able to spend more time. I highly recommended her as an excellent guide, with superior English skills.
Hi, Beth san Thank you very much for writing such a wonderful review of the tour. Yes, many tourists think Sado is small but it is not true. I recommend to stay at least one night on the island to visit places of your interests! I didn't want to rush you but we skipped one more place so I hope you to come back and we can do more activities including meeting local people or just walking in local community. Please stay healthy and happy and see you again! Fujiko
My family and I had a wonderful day in Kyoto thanks to Yumiko. She was very knowledgeable, caring, charismatic, and fluent in english. We did our research, I let her know where we wanted to visit and she set up the most efficient route for us, saving us a lot of time. After the tour, she gave us a hand written list of places that she suggested to research and go if interested. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to take a tour of kyoto.
