NINJA TRICK HOUSE


Ninja Village in Nagano, 2009-11-09

Completely forgot to upload these photos! I took them at the beginning of November during our trip in Nagano prefecture.
We spent an afternoon in this Ninja village : even if it was a rather small place, it was fun!

The place is called : Togakushi Ninja Karakuri Yashiki.

I said village but it mostly composed of 3 main houses.

One being a "trick" house. This is where the fun happened! You enter the house and the goal, well, is to get out of it!

This room was built at an angle, just looking into it I was feeling bad, kind of a car sick (I must be too sensitive -_-).

So you have to discover the many secret path and doors.

Then there was this wall, much more difficult than it looks like, start was easy but the end asked for skills...

The usual representation of Ninja wearing black stuff comes from the movies.

Actually being spies, their goal was to remain undiscovered and usually they dressed like anybody...

Maybe during night mission their outfit was different though

Many photos coming from movies or guys practicing... It seems there was (is??) an actual "association"...

Great pictures, thanks for posting.

The orginastion you might have heard about is called Bujinkan.

A google search for Bujinkan dojo will give plenty of results.

Regards,

Dave.

Thank you Dave for the information. Sorry to answer that late...been very busy lately...

I noticed that this photo-article was featured on a martial art forum :) Welcome to their readers ! (unfortunately you won't find that much about martial arts here... but I guess you have also an interest in Japan ;) ...)
