The area around Kanda Station is a very popular neighborhood where you can find countless unique restaurants and bars. If you’re going out for some drinks in Tokyo, we recommend the bar district in Kanda, where you get to the chance to interact with locals. Lately, a new facility where you can train as a ninja – and fight in a VR game! – is getting very popular in Kanda. So first become a ninja… and then head to the bar district for some refreshments!
VR NINJA DOJO
Anyone can become a ninja
After changing into a ninja costume, a Ninja Master will teach you – with a lot of humor and in English – how to use swords and throwing stars (shuriken), how to pronounce the names of different ninja moves, and how to best dodge enemy attacks.
Ready for virtual reality?
After the basic training, it’s finally time for the big battle! Each player (ninja) enters – one at a time – a chamber with a green screen. Inside, you receive a pair of VR goggles and remote control gloves. Then, it’s time to fight against a horde of enemies. Don’t forget to make full use of all the techniques you learned earlier!
After the game, you will be presented with a scroll with your (ninja) photo on it. By scanning the QR code printed on the scroll, you can view or download a video showing your fight in the VR room. This fun VR ninja experience will unquestionably be a special memory and it’s also a great activity for families!
