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).

Kazuhiko was a great guide and he had the best driver. He was very helpful and accommodated all our requests. We highly recommend him. Thank you, Kazu!
Hiro took us on tours of Nara and Kyoto and we are so glad we picked him to be our guide! We learned so much about the history behind every site that we never would have learned had we not had him with us. You can tell Hiro enjoys what he does because of his enthusiasm. We will definitely hire him again the next time we visit Japan!
Dear Adele, Thank you very much for your prompt submission of wonderful review on the tour with me. I really had pleasant two days with you and Brad. I am also very much impressed with Brad's deep interest about the culture and the history of Japan. I look forward to seeing you again in the near future. Please give my best regards to Brad. Best regards, Hiroyuki
Motoyuki is fantastic. It was a great tour but even more important was he went way out of his way to help us. I was with my elderly mother and he went to a lot of effort beyond what could be expected to help make things easier on her. I have stayed at some very high end resorts and the customer service from Motoyuki was even better. He is not only a good tour guide but such a calm and caring man. Looking forward to seeing him again next time I am in the area.
We thoroughly enjoyed our day with "Kochi". He was very good at navigating the day in a smoothe an efficient manner. He was very knowledgeable and gave us a good and interesting historical perspective of the area.
