OK, I promised Ninja pictures... Kumam0to Castle part 2
OK, I assume you saw the castle pictures
HERE in my entry
yesterday, right? Well there was a surprise waiting for us when we got
up to the upper tier to the castle grounds (much like Kareem waiting at
the top level in Game of Death).... Take a closer look at this picture:
Hey, those aren't gardeners, are they? No, they are slightly authentic
Japanese Ninjas... but not the murdering kind... rather the gentle
kind... who like to hang out in front of castles and take pictures with
tourists... (yes, you know,
So we went up to them to ask if it was OK to take a picture, and not
only did they say yes... but they even posed... AND handed over a
Ninjitsu! ha! no match for my years of deadly Chanbara experience!
I actually also saw him sneaking his cell phone back into his ninja pockets (perhaps he keeps it in the pocket that the ninja
shuko clawsare normally stored in?).
Later on the way out, we went out the main tour group gate, and got a picture with the finest in imperial guardsmen:
Actually the guy on the left had dyed hair, and the guy on the right
was wearing ski gloves... but hey, I don't think they had camoflague
ninjas in medeviel Japan either.
Actually the camo and girl ninja were out here by the time we got here:
He was coaching her on some ninjitsu stuff... but it was clear that she had very little if any ninja experience.
Which is unfortunate... especially be the time this group of drunken Japanese men guys came by...
They were pretty loud and annoying. Camo ninja should have busted out his
Manrikigusari("...popular among the Ninja!") or perhaps popped a shuriken in one of their eye sockets to put them in their place...
