An excursion from Osaka or Nagoya

Akame 48 Waterfalls and the surrounding area is a legendary site where Ninjas and mountain priests trained themselves. This fun yet informative session will enable you to experience some of the real Ninja training.

After the ninja training, if the weather is not too bad, I will take you to a short hiking to see the waterfalls.

If you would like to stay longer in the area to relax and enjoy the area, I can recommend you to stay in Sasayuri-ann for the night, subject to availablity. Sasayuri-ann is a lodge that renovated a Japanese traditional home in a very local village up in the mountains about 15 minutes by car that accepts only one group per day.

A Recent Review of this tour

The Ninja training with Kumi was a lot of fun even for an adult like me. Kumi was a very friendly, well informed and esspacialy funny guide. She was very helpful and told me many interesting things of all kinds. The waterfall and the surrounding forest was beautyful and worth the walk. And the sweet potato pies were delicious. Thank you for a wonderful tour.
