The Ninja!

This is the ninja !

Many people who visit Japan are interested in " NINJA"
Maybe the first encounter of Ninja is in a movie or an animation film, isn't it?

Just a couple of years ago, the people who want to have such a special experience had to go to so-called Ninja village, for example, Iga Ninja village or Koga ninja village.
But I have good news !

You can enjoy Ninja workshop in KYOTO !
It is in the building in downtown. in Kyoto

When you enter the room, the real descendant of Iga ninja will welcome you with a smile.

 Though he is the sixth generation of Iga,  he said he was born in an ordinally family. He learned everything about Ninja from the other instructor of Ninja.

According to him, he says he is the sixth generation but he has older generation  but he could not make sure.

Please look his finger and you will see something on his finger This is for attack.
The movie usually exaggerates the action of the ninja, but basically they work for collecting the necessary information for their lords.
Almost all the weapons were used for protecting themselves when they were attacked or their secret mission was found.



These are something like spikes. You can easily imagine it is very hard to walk on them.  They are natural seeds and completely dried. I touched them and found it  very hard, Of course I don't want to walk on them




He is throwing Ninja stars


Can you find one sword different from the others?
Samurai sword is a little bent to fight in an open space to cut somebody
However, Ninja's weapons are used in various ways, making most of them. For instance, the one on the top of the shelf  is not bent. and has a square  brim.
The brim is used to step on  for climbing the wall. in addition to protecting their hand
The tip of the sword case can be taken off, and used for the breathing tube when in the water.
The string can be used for wielding to intimidating and securing the space between him and the enemy.

In this way, you can enjoy the several ways of lesson or experience there.

When we left there, answering my question, he said
The ninja worked on a family unit basis. They are something like  contract workers in this modern society 
For their contract, they showed loyalty to the lord for the future business. And all the samurai lord hired ninja to collect information and use for strategy in the war.
I have seen the scene in which a ninja jumps onto the roof or jumps off from the high wall.
The sixth generation said, in those days, people did not train themselves to jump higher or in the way ninja did. So when the people saw the ninja leaping off from the top of the wall, it looked like a superman ! It is really persuasive
