Iga Ninja Museum showcases the history and artifacts of
ninja in the Iga area. The museum can be found in Mie
prefecture near the Iga Ueno Castle. It was first
established in 1964 and the current honorary director of
the facility is Jinichi Kawakami, the proclaimed 21st head
of Iga-ryu ninjutsu. Iga Ninja Museum is comprised of two
exhibitions, ninja residence, and stage. All the areas
combined provide a comprehensive understanding of the
ninja culture in Iga.
In the museum’s collection you can see ninjutsu (art of stealth) tools that were used and learn about their use. There are also ancient Ninjutsu writings that have been scientifically analyzed. The 400 ninja tools that are on display show the types of weapons used during the time when ninjas were active. At the stage area of the museum there are ninja shows that demonstrate the use of real weapons. They showcase actual ninja skills, but the show is only in Japanese. Also part of the Iga Ninja Museum is a residence that Iga ninjas once used. Even though it looks normal from the outside, the inside vastly differs. There are revolving walls, hidden compartments, and trap doors that the Iga ninja utilize when there were intruders present.
