Anyone here ever done naginatajutsu? I've had an interest in it for a while, but I can't imagine ever finding a school without going to Japan. Is naginatado completely modernized i.e, kendo to kenjutsu, or does it retain any sense of realism? How does the martial art typically hold up against other polearm fighting styles?

There is alot of variety in naginatajutsu. naginatado is modernized to some extent, though its alot closer to its roots than kendo is, it still has alot of strong ties to traditional schools.

As for the older arts you have those that train womens self defense naginata and those that train heavier war naginata. If your training in battle field stuff you'll probably learn alot of other weapons along side it.

The Naginata was the perfered polarm thoughout the early part of Japanese history, before ashigaru and massed formations. after massed formations the spear became popular since it takes alot less room to use.

Naginata is kinda rare outside japan but there are a number of schools out there that teach it. you can search on ebudo and koryu.com and check on google were to find them in the US and Europe.

There are a few places in Orange County and LA that teach naginata. It's a lot like kendo just with shin guards and, well, a naginata. Different kote gloves too. In Japan it's mostly popular with girls but internationally the biggest rival to Japan in the global tournament is Canada.
