Although it is a guided tour conducted in Japanese, we were able to follow the tour as the staff passed us a folder with English description and she helped us along the way. It is amazing to understand more about this group of secretive and...More
If you like ninja, I recommend Iga instead of Koka. Koka is not tourist-friendly and Iga is. For Koka Ninja House, the nearest railway station is Konan, but there is only one train per hour at the station. We took a taxi at Kibukawa, which...More
Enjoy the non touristy Ninja house preserved in Koka, Children will have a good time exploring the real Ninja houses with traps and interesting hidden doors and floors. Worth a quick drop by if you are driving in the area en route to Kyoto or...More
This house, once the home of a ninja, is a very interesting place. Nothing prepares you for the extraordinary stuff inside, as from the outside it looks like any ordinary cottage. It's really a museum showcasing various instruments used in fighting by the ninjas. There...More
Run down. This could have been so interesting & inspiring. Sadly a let down. The surrounding area is a also run down as photos show. Staff unfriendly. Waited 45 mins for an explanation in Japanese. Very little atmosphere in the area or in the ninja...More
This is a great experience forNy one interested in ninja history. I was told this is the last surviving original ninja house available for public visits. Guided tour started with a short historical video of this house and koka ninja family. All of the guided...More
This attraction was absolutely worth the train trip and long walk up to the museum. Designed to showcase all of the tricks and traps built into the Ninja house, I pity the unsuspecting home invaders in this scenario. It just goes to prove that you...More
Teen boys with some martial art interest will certainly love it. Guided tour was in japanese but you can ask english questions afterwards. Gives a good impression of how ninjas lived, a good collection of artefacts, secret traps and doors.
You can throw shurikens for...More
I went there by myself, which took me around 1hour something from Kyoto (so long....). However, everything is deserved as traps and design of the house showed ninja's wisdom! Moreover, you could rent the Ninja's suit and experience "weapon" practice!!
I visited here in the winter of 2005 in heavy snow, yet I remember it quite vividly, and I remember how so cool it was.
Unlike the other ninja temple I visited recently, there is no ninja show, but rather a tour through the house...More

My daughter lives in Japan so we took the train then walked about 2-3 miles to the museum. It was a hot day and I remember thinking how far it was in the sun. So my advice is to hire a car and drive because the attraction is in an out of the way spot. In fact I was wondering why we were walking through what was a residential neighbourhood.
I do not know the opening times and would strongly recommend that you contact the place to confirm. By the way, the long journey was worth the trek; a once in a lifetime experience.
