I'm always fascinated by the mysterious ninjas and decide to make a day trip from Kyoto to Iga to visit the birthplace of Iga Ninjas. It took us about 2.5 hours and 4 trains to reach the park.
The museum is quite small. When first entered, there was an demonstration by lady "ninja" showing all the different hidden doors and storages. The 15 mins demonstration was in Japanese, but they hang English explanation on the wall.
After that, visitors will walk down the stairs into a room full of ninja equipments and weapons and the static display continue in the next building. English explanation provided for the static displays.
Additional fee of JPY300 required to watch the ninja show, but the action not to be missed.
We stayed about 2.5 hours at the museum, and I would give a "Very Good" rating if not for the distance.
Tips: There is only one noodle restaurant in the park next to the museum, you may want to have your meal before entering the park.
