Kids Ninja Village (Chibikko Ninja Mura)
One of two locations in Togakushi dedicated to the Togakure school of ninjutsu, the Kids Ninja Village is particularly geared for small children. The kids (as well as their parents) can rent a ninja costume and try their skill at an extensive variety of athletic challenges. One of the most popular is pulling a rope to cross a pond standing on a raft. There are also a ninja fun house, a museum of ninjutsu arts, a shuriken throwing range, and, periodically, ninja demonstrations.
Togakushi’s Kids Ninja Village is perfect for little children with lots of energy to channel their inner-ninja.
