In this tour, I'd like you to experience Japanese traditional culture through 5 senses.
Have you ever heard Zazen? Samurai? Ninja?
I've played these Japanese cultures such as Kendo, Kyudo, Zazen, a totally of 10 years.
We'll explore and experience it together!
At your hotel
Kyoto Samurai & Ninja Museum
around down town
【Kyoto Samurai & Ninja Museum】
Through activities, you can be Japanese Samurai and Ninja.
Samurai experience: Dressing up like a samurai, wearing a real samurai helmet and holding a metal samurai sword
Ninja experience: Throwing ninja stars and using a blowgun
Apart from reality, you can calm down and touch your mind.
Zazen experience: Buddhist practice method that sits in a correct position and focus on your mind or this moment.
These practices need to make a reservation beforehand so that please tell me as soon as possible.
I'll try to make a reservation on one of these temple practices.

Had a lovely time with Masa, the samurai museum/ninja school was the high light for our family, then a lovely lunch and leisurely walk to the temple complex . Masanao gave a good commentary and answer all our questions, wonderful day
Thank you for the nice message. I was glad your family, especially kids, could experience one of Japanese culture through a real activity at the Samurai/Ninja museum. I also had a lovely time with your all family members and I was moved by the smile of kids. That was such a nice moment for me as a guide. Thank you for your family visiting Japan for the first time. Kind Regards, Masa.
My daughter and I got to sample a perfect Japanese lunch at a reasonable cost of around Y500 to Y1,000 per person. The restaurant catered to seafood, meat and vegetarian tastes. Next we sampled Kyoto desserts, such as " Warabi Mochi, Taiyaki and Shitatani. Beautifully made. Out walking at Shin-kyougoku (2nd oldest market in Kyoto) and Nishiki fish market gave us the sense of the wonderful Japanese culture. We finished by travelling to famous Gion area, viewing the temples and shrines along the way. He answered all our questions thoughtfully and clearly. Great tour! Thank you Masanao! Will reserve with TripleLights again for our next trip.
Thank you very much for the comment giving me more motivation for this job. Through this tour, I was so glad that we talked about a variety of topics like how Canada is, how Norine and Rebecca lead a life, and of course our tour. And when you could find delicious foods, I'm super happy I could look at your smiles. That was such a nice moment for me as a tour guide. Thanks to meet your family, I also got more motivation to go studying in Canada. I'm not sure my future result though, I'll do my best. Thank you for giving me nice memories for me. I hope your family spends a lot of happiness and comes here again. Kind regards, Masanao.
