Ninja Temple - Review

Kanazawa is known for its temples and shrines and Myoryuji- Ninja Temple gives you a glimpse of authentic Japanese culture. Built by Mazda lords, the temple has many escape routes and considerable defences and hence the name Ninja Temple. The temple has secret tunnels, staircases and traps which once prevented entry from allied forces. It is advisable to take private tours to the castles and make the reservations for the same, well before time. Guidebooks in English and Japanese language are also available for your convenience.

Ninja Temple, Kanazawa-shi Reviews

  • It was super interesting! The ninja temple that has nothing to do with ninjas haha but still a very interesting building! I went to the japanese tour with a friend. Made a reservation a couple of days before but then changed the hour the same day and there was no problem. Not sure if they have tours in English or just some written info in English ... anyways it was worth every yen

  • Interesting place, but beware if English... You may end up tacked onto a group of Japanese with no English commentary; and have to read a page from a book (which isn't easy if you're supposed to be watching the hidden doors). Really lost the ambiance of a potentially great view

  • Fascinating temple with many hidden staircases. Reservation necessary. Mandatory tour is in Japanese only but you get a booklet with an English translation.

  • Very interesting, better than the reviews here led me to expect. You get a guidebook which more or less lists everything told in Japanese, and it’s fascinating to see everything in the temple. But yes, it has nothing to do with ninjas haha

  • Pretty interesting temple. While its not related to ninja, the plethora of various traps, secret doors is certainly eye opening. While there are many castles or temples to visit in Japan, the guide here gives a pretty good explanation of the various features here. Was worth the effort (cold wind and rain) in the end.
