Ninja Trick House
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.
Good this one was not "active"...
Then there was this wall, much more difficult than it looks like, start was easy but the end asked for skills...
Inside the old mill.
And then a house was dedicated to Ninja weapons and gears
Lots of evil stuff! :)
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"...
Any ninjitsu specialist around here ?
Hey dude! what's wrong with your arm ?
Secret ninja stories or manual ?
It's funny how the traditional roofs remind me the ones in Normandy, almost same technique is used...
Any need of winter shoes ? Last trend in Nagano mountain!
