Ninja Hideaway is a race course in Mario Kart Tour that was introduced in the Ninja Tour. The course takes place at a Japanese dojo at night and features two routes that drivers can alternate between: one main, ground-level route and one elevated route usually accessible through regular ramps or Glide Ramps. The course is strewn with obstacles such as ninja Shy Guys and lowering spiked ceilings. Kanji characters on the front of the dojo mean "way of the ninja".
Wario-related iconography can be seen throughout Ninja Hideaway, such as depictions of his mustache and nose on the front of one of the buildings, as well as garlic motifs seen on windows, banners, and fences, referencing Wario's love for garlic. The course in its entirety may be a reference to Diamond Dojo and its surrounding area from the WarioWare series, as both the interior and exterior of the buildings appear similar to their in-series counterparts. This course is a favorite of Fire Rosalina, Cat Toad, Penguin Toad, Wario (Cowboy), Nabbit, and Shy Guy (Ninja). It can also be a favorite of King Bob-omb (Gold) if he reaches level 6.
In the Ninja Tour, Ninja Hideaway served as the tour's signature course. It appeared as the first course in the Rosalina Cup, the third course in the Diddy Kong Cup, and the location of the bonus challenge in the Baby Mario Cup. Its T variant appeared as the first course in the Larry Cup and the second course in the Waluigi Cup, and its R variant appeared as the second course in the Toadette Cup and the first course in the Koopa Troopa Cup.
