Why don't you make a one-day trip from Kyoto to Koka Ninja's homeland of Koka City?


Koka City is home of Ninjas, and just one hour away from Kyoto.

It is a perfect place to avoid the big crowds of Kyoto and learn about the real Ninja.

Koka is a quiet and beautiful rural town, and the best to go with a bicycle.

There is no such tour to visit the real Ninja places guided by a Ninja/local Samurai descendant who can speak English.


You can experience a very unique tour from this.

Kyoto Tour Reviews

A unique and charming day!

We had a wonderful time visiting Taka’s hometown - the land of Ninjas! It was lovely to spend time out of the city - the kids loved the bike riding and of course everything to do with ninjas. Thank you so much for your hospitality Taka!

Jacqueline C.

You are most welcome. I am glad your children liked my Ninja tour. You have a beautiful family.

Wonderful tour to introduce us to Kyoto

We were very impressed with our half-day tour with Taka. We were able to see major temples and neighborhoods. Taka is an excellent guide. He was informative and provided context for each site without over loading us with information. I highly recommend this tour.

This tour is the one and only for you. Kyoto was an ancient capital of Japan for over 1200 years. Embedded in centuries of history and culture, it offers too much to see in one visit. Here the ancient world is integrated with the modern. The phenomenal concentration of history and legend coexists with an equally phenomenal concentration of people busily going about their everyday life. Please tell me your interest, and I will make an itinerary exclusively for you!
