M-40 Exciting “Ninja” training & Mountain waterfall
The Birthplace of Ninja
There were many ninjutsu (Ninja technique) schools in Japan.
Among them, Iga-style ninjutsu is well-known as being particularly excellent along with Koga-ryu ninjutsu.
Why is that?
Originally, Iga was controlled by Todaiji Temple in Nara.
Eventually, “villains” who rebel against the rule of Todaiji Temple appeared there. Todaiji asked the government to crack down on this “villain,” but couldn’t put it down.
In lands beyond the control of the country, they will hone their unique combat skills and complete ninjutsu (Ninja technique).
In other words, this “villain” is the root of the Iga-style Ninja.
Iga is surrounded by deep mountains on all sides, and it was a land where people who had been displaced from the city for some reason came. Various information gathered in Iga and went out.
The Akame ravine have been chosen by Iga style Ninja as a training place as it offer a large panel of natural training environment and for it’s strategic localization at that time.
16th century, the Sengoku (Samurai) period began.
The Japan was divided into many small countries and fought fierce battles. Under such circumstances, Iga Ninja was bought the technology and was hired by military commanders from various countries.
That’s how the ninja spread all over Japan.

The 48 Water Falls
The Akame 48 waterfalls are a collective name for a string of waterfalls flowing through Akame-cho, Nabari, Mie. In Japan, more than 1300 years ago, a legendary holy man named En no gyoja was active. It is said the name Akame (red eye) derives from a legend that he met Fudo-myoo (God of Fire) riding a red-eyed ox. They are actually much more than 48 waterfalls, but the number “48” means “Many” in Japanese.
There are various waterfalls in Akame. Among them, five large falls, “Fudo”, “Senju”, “Nunobiki”, “Ninai” and “Biwa” are popular under the name of “The Akame Five Waterfalls”. A recreational path about 4 km long along the waterfalls is used as a hiking path to enjoy walking while listening to the sound of the waterfalls. The path is famous for its different aspects according to the season, from cherry blossoms in spring through tender green in early summer, colored leaves in autumn to frozen falls in winter.
