Ninja Museum of Iga-ryu (Ninja House) 伊賀流忍者博物館(忍者屋敷)

You can get a thrilling experience as if you had sneaked into a ninja house.

The exterior is a very common farmer's house with a straw-thatched roof, but there are plenty of traps for defense.
A "Ku-no-ichi" (female ninja) will guide you through the house as she explains and demonstrates how traps and trickery such as "Dondengaeshi" (hidden doors), trap doors and concealing things were used.

Also available are the "Ninjutsu Experience Plaza" where you can experience shuriken throwing (fee is charged) and "dondengaeshi", the "Ninja Experience Hall" and the "Ninja Tradition Hall" where you can experience ninja skills and see the real ninja tools being displayed.
There is also an original ninja goods shop, "Ninja Bo".

Furthermore, a truly exciting ninja show by the ninja group "Ashura" is held at the "Ninjutsu Experience Plaza"!
This show is also extremely popular (the show is charged. the show dates should be confirmed in adance).
