Myoryu-ji: Ninja Temple

Just off the busy area of Kanazawa there is a Buddhist temple known as Ninja-dera (“Ninja Temple”). The real name of this favorite tourist attraction is Myoryu-ji, located just after crossing the Sai-gawa river. Although the temple actually has nothing to do with Ninja, many guidebooks call it Ninja Temple in reference to the number of deceptive defences (traps) inside the building. Today, we visited this secretive temple in Kanazawa with its 360-year history.
