The Kids Ninja Village (チビッ子忍者村, Chibiko Ninja Mura) is a small theme park with ninja related attractions located at Mount Togakushi in Nagano City, the legendary home of the Togakure Ninja School. The village is set within a forest, featuring many obstacle courses and jungle gyms for visitors to pretend undergoing ninja training.

Despite its name, the Kids Ninja Village has several attractions which also appeal to some adults, although grown up tourists will generally find the nearby Togakure Ninpo Museum of higher interest. Many of the village's popular attractions require a separate fee, including blow dart and throwing star shooting and two ninja mansions with labyrinths, trapdoors and contraptions. In one of the mansions there is also a room which uses optical illusion to trick the mind into seeing the extraordinary.
