Learn the Way of the NinjaKyoto, Japan

Ever wanted super powers? Get one step closer by delving into the legend of the ninja in Japan. Your first stop is Kyoto, where you’ll learn to use a bow and arrow in an archery class. Next, you’ll study the ancient art of kenbu (sword dancing). In your downtime, explore the city’s temples or visit a tearoom for a warm cup of matcha. Board a shinkansen (bullet train) and zoom to Tokyo where you’ll undertake the ultimate ninja experience: a training session at a dojo with a karate master. Here, your sensei will guide you through various movements and techniques (and hopefully leave you in one piece). After your lesson wander Tokyo’s crowded streets, cutesy toy shops and tiny sushi bars. You might not become Superman, but being a fully fledged ninja will look pretty cool on your resumé.
