Anyone interested in martial arts or the history of samurai or ninja should come and see. In the ancient Japan environment there are numerous shows. On the spot, you'll find fine souvenir shops. For the park you need at least 3 hours.

Having grown up with those overdubbed samurai period dramas made me think this could be fun. We have been to Kyoto enough times to not need to see too many more temples and there are soooo many, so we left time for this one. Everything...More

Absolute fun, especially if you are into Samurai and Ninja movies. It is full of free and not free (a bit pricey) activities. Actors are very good and engage with the public of all languages. We ended up there almost by chance and it happened...More
