Togakure Ninja Museum
Nagano City, Nagano Pref.
Togakushi is home to the Togakure School of Ninpo, a group of ninjas with a history of over 800 years. At the Museum of Togakure School of Ninpo, actual ninja weapons such as shuriken and arrows, and ninja tools, such as spiked rings for climbing earthen walls, are on display, as well as valuable photographs contributed by Masaaki Hatsumi, the 34th Togakure Master. In addition to the museum, there is the Ninja House with secret staircases and hidden doors to find your way through. There’s also a shuriken “dojo” where you can try flinging real throwing stars.
Adjacent to the Museum is the Museum of Togakushi Folklore featuring 2000 every-day items from the Edo period.
