The Koka Ninja House locates in the southern area of Shiga prefecture. The house was built in the beginning of the Edo period (1603 – 1867) by Mochizuki Izumonokami, the head of the Koka ninja clan. This is the only remaining ninja clan house in Japan. In the house, you can learn about the history of the Koka ninjas, and also have interactive experiences with real ninja items.
