From my point of view 🙂
It was my first visit to Iga in my life. Iga is located in the middle of Japan and located between Osaka and Nagoya so that I always passed through. However, I found many of the old Japanese cultures here in Iga.
Especially, Iga is well-known for Ninja!! I strongly recommend to watch the “Ninja Show.” They use the real Ninja weapons to perform their show which is quite scary, but they do not forget to make us smile by joking sometimes.
By the way, if you are interested, the final stage of “Iga-Ryu Shuriken Throwing Competition” is hold every year here. To be the participants, you must enroll regionally and must be qualified to go onto the final stage. The first prize is “The Gold Shuriken.” Because it is held in open space, audiences are welcome,too.
For more details, please check with “Iga-Ryu Ninja Museum.”
If you visit thie area, you can also see Iga Ueno Castle, Iga Kumihimo Braiding Center, and Dangiri Museum. There are all walk-able distance between. So it may be a good idea to spend your day around this area.
