Descrizione

"... They come like Wind, they go like Lightning".
(Sun Tzu, "The Art of War")

In medieval Japan there were a few dozen families of Iga and Koga provinces specializing in Ninjutsu. Most of them belonged to the category of "goshi" - inferior level of the samurai class with its own hereditary estates. In Koga goshi clans were 53. In Iga dominated three Ninja clans - Hattori, Momoti and Fudzhibayashi.

They were not only cold-blooded assassins and spies as well as trying to present them some authors. Not accidental their art was preserved more than 1,300 years.

The key to this art is their device: "Patience above all else".

This visual history of the ninja introduces us to their ideology, lifestyle, training and weapons. It is interesting for both children and adults.

Foreword

... They come like Wind, they go like Lightning. (Sun Tzu, The Art of War)

They called them Invisibles.

In medieval Japan there were a few dozen families of Iga and Koga provinces specializing in Ninjutsu. Most of them belonged to the category of goshi - inferior level of the samurai class with its own hereditary estates. In Koga goshi clans were 53. In Iga dominated three Ninja clans - Hattori, Momoti and Fudzhibayashi.

The Iga and Koga clans have come to describe families living in the province of Iga (modern Mie Prefecture) and the adjacent region of Koka (later written as Koga), named after a village in what is now Shiga Prefecture.

Historical documents regarding the ninja's origins in these mountainous regions are considered generally correct.

A distinction is to be made between the ninja from these areas, and commoners or samurai hired as spies or mercenaries. Unlike their counterparts, the Iga and Koga clans produced professional ninja, specifically trained for their roles.These professional ninja were actively hired by daimyos between 1485 and 1581, until Oda Nobunaga invaded Iga province and wiped out the organized clans. Survivors were forced to flee, some to the mountains of Kii, but others arrived before Tokugawa Ieyasu, where they were well treated. Some former Iga clan members, including Hattori Hanzo, would later serve as Tokugawa's bodyguards.

Following the Battle of Okehazama in 1560, Tokugawa employed a group of eighty Koga ninja, led by Tomo Sukesada. They were tasked to raid an outpost of the Imagawa clan. The account of this assault is given in the Mikawa Go Fudoki, where it was written that Koga ninja infiltrated the castle, set fire to its towers, and killed the castellan along with 200 of the garrison.
