Whisper of the Ninja

Famous and legendary Ninjas

 

In feudal Japan, two types of warriors emerged: the samurai, nobles who ruled the country in the name of the Emperor, and ninjas, often from the lower classes, who carried out espionage and assassination missions.

The functions of the ninja included sabotage, infiltration and so on…

 

Because the ninja (or shinobi) was supposed to be a secretive, stealthy agent who fought only when absolutely necessary, their names and deeds have made much less of a mark on the historical record than those of the samurai, though it’s known that their largest clans were based in the Iga and Koga domains.

Yet even in the shadowy world of the ninja, a few people stand out as exemplars of the ninja craft, those whose legacy lives on in Japanese culture, inspiring works of art and literature that last through the ages.
