Reveal the true nature of the mysterious “ninja”

Ninja are loved all over the world in a myriad forms, including films, anime and many more. Who exactly were the Ninja is still shrouded in mystery but, thanks to academic research carried out by Mie University and others, the truth is now being uncovered. The Ninja were people with comprehensive abilities in terms of “mind, skills and body” and ninjutsu was an accumulation of practical knowledge concerning nature and society. This exhibition offers you the opportunity to train yourself in throwing shuriken, improving your jumping power, and introduces skills like memory enhancing techniques, sending secret messages, and special breathing techniques necessary for successful completion of a mission. By studying old ninjutsu manuscripts, and with the help of modern science, we can get close to the “True Ninja” and find hints that may help us to survive in the coming future.
