My name is Shibata Vanessa. I'm the head of a ninja-samurai clan named Musashi Ichizoku. If you study a bit of the Japanese history, you'll come across a name "Shibata Katsuie" , my ancestor who fought the Battle of Shizugatake in 1583.

Our ancestors worked for Tokugawa Shogunate Government for 265 years, and we have kept our traditions to this date.
I started a ninja tour to offer international visitors, especially families, a chance to see something authentic and interesting at the same time, in addition to introducing our legacy to the general public in Japan and to giving my young shinobi friends some chances to share their arts and thoughts.
My dojo (training place) is located near a JR station.
At our dojo in Tokyo, you'll see nimpo taijutsu based on my samurai-ninja weapon-smith family legacy of 420 years. We'll show you the very basics skills of a ninja, which are perhaps enough for the general public who want to get a glimpse of our legacy. Coming here, you will find that there are still shinobis in the world today.

    Loved this!

    My sister and I loved this experience. It was a highlight for me. Learning the moves was fun and challenging and there was also a lot to be learned about the Samurai way of life that I wasn't expecting but really enjoyed. Highly recommend.

    Good experience!

    I thoroughly enjoyed my 2 hours at the dojo. The translator and the master were very friendly! I would recommend this to anyone interested in having a samurai experience and it is exactly as described on the website!

    We greatly enjoyed our experience at the Dojo, which was held in a family Dojo; being able to dress in full hakama, learning some basic Kendo and taking time out to use shrurikan and samurai bow and arrows was all areal a treat. Even the sensei was pretty relaxed about me accidentally hitting him in the head with one of the practise swords. All in all, a very worthwhile experience for anyone looking for an insight into current day martial arts within Japan. Lots of fun (more for adults than children).
