Ninja Training Booking:0595-64－2695. We arrived for the afternoon training session and stayed at Taisenkaku Ryokan and then enjoyed the mountain walk of Akame Shijuhachitaki water falls next day. But the day trip is totally feasible if you plan to get there for morning session and go to the Water Falls in the afternoon. Also you can enjoy day-visitor Onsen in the Ryokan with the fee of around 1000yen. Access from Kyoto St with Kintestu Limited Express is 90 minutes to Akame Guchi St.and from Nagoya St also with Kintetsu Line will be around 95 mins. Just remember to avoid Autumn Maple Leaf season. The place will be packed with Japanese tourists just want to see the colourful mountain scenes.
