Ninja Temple, Kanazawa-shi Reviews

  • 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

  • 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.

  • This temple includes 23 rooms and 29 stairs in complicated structures. It is a complex architectural. There are inside some rooms connected with each others, as well there are few architectural details that can give the temple a sense of mystery and wonder like a secret door leading to a hidden rooms or underground and under stairs. The story said that the temple has been built to protect Kanazawa castle from enemies. There is inside a tunnel which the story said that the tunnel is connected direct to Kanazawa castle. Whatever, this temple is just a place of worship for Buddhists people. Actually, Ninja temple has nothing to do with ninjas.

  • Amazing house, be sure too book your tour. Tours are in Japanese only, but we got a booklet with tour translation in English. Must go!
