  • It is a short distance from Nijo Jomae Station. It is still used as a residence, so it is a complete reservation system. There are hidden stairs, and there is a side like the ninja residence, too and it is interesting. You can also take a tour with guidance. Photography is NG.

  • It seems to have been built as a lodging place of the daimyo of the visiting place change in the beginning of the Edo period. There is a mechanism for the protection of the body which does not understand from the appearance of the building. The window which seems to be a light from the room is a warrior. If you look at the state of the room from the back of the ceiling and sense the danger, it is made to jump down and to protect the master. When the shoji or sliding door is opened, the sound is made to prevent the intruder. There are also jumping and dropping stairs that intruders don't know. I think that it is a ninja residence when there is a device repeatedly in the fire prevention, and it sees. Time passed in no time when i looked at it interestingly.

  • Beautiful building. Great volunteer guide. Interesting design features. Not a ninja house. Just A great traditional house with unusual features like a build in private stage. Highly recommend. Mosquitoes where plentiful. Wear bug spray before you go.
  • Awesome experience. Definitely do this if you have time. I recommend getting a translator from the Nijo-Jinya fan club for an enthusiastic guide!
