"Home of Ninjutsu" Ueno by Rabbityama

Ueno Travel Guide: 12 reviews and 33 photos

Iga Ueno is most famous for being the city where the school of ninjutsu, the ninja art of stealth, was founded. Today, although there are no more ninjas, the city has held onto its heritage by creating a museum, a ninja house, and performing ninja demonstrations for visitors to educate them about the lives of ninjas and their fighting techniques. The museum and ninja house are educational, and the demonstrations are both educational and fun. If you're travelling in Japan with children, then seriously consider adding Iga Ueno to your itinerary!

Iga Ueno Castle

Just above the Ninja Museum stands the reconstructed Iga Ueno Castle. It's a nice place to eat and rest after visiting the museum. Of course, you can also go inside the castle, which provides a nice view of the city!
