Learn lost arts at the ancestral home of the ninja!

Eco-tourism, history and martial training amidst the Akame falls

At the forty-eight falls of Akame — training ground for the famed Iga ninja clan in the 15th and 16th centuries — you, too, can become a ninja for a day.

Wearing authentic clothing, you’ll get the lowdown on timehonored techniques of concentration, climbing, and infiltration. Dodge throwing stars and defend yourself in a VR-assisted shuriken throwing star simulation.

The 90-minute tour takes in ancient forests and rushing rapids along the way on a course sure to delight the whole family — nature lovers and aspiring ninja alike. Children under seven must be accompanied by an adult. Akame is 2.5 hours by train or car from Chubu Centrair International
