Of course, there is.

According to Otakuma and Hachima, this “Ninja Academy” is in Nara Prefecture. You learn the art of handling a katana, shuriken throwing, dart blowing, how to shoot old-fashioned firearms, Japanese archery, and more.

Think of these as your learning tools, because that’s exactly what they are.

The lessons are hands on.

Nice one!

There is a one day course for 2,000 yen and a two day course for 4,000 yen. There is apparently no limit to the number of students able to take the course.

Even kids can participate, it seems.

Armour and ninja outfits are apparently available for use, free of charge.

The Ninja Academy even awards certificates—aka, Licenses to Ninja!
