Iga Ninja Museum


Today's post is not related to tea, sorry. It's a journal of my Mie trip.
Iga city is well known for ninja. We went to Iga Ninja Museum. It is a small museum of ninja. There was a ninja house, and it looked like a simple farm dwelling. They showed some hidden traps and escape routes in the house on a little tour.

We also visited to Iga-Ueno castle next to the museum.
