A special exhibition “The NINJA – who were they?” is going to be held at Miraikan (The National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation) in Odaiba, Tokyo, from July 2nd to October 10th, 2016.
Ninja x Science x Training
“This special exhibition explores the nature of the ninja’s skills, physical abilities and wisdom from the viewpoint of modern science. With Mie University’s cooperation in academic research, the exhibition reveals ninja wisdom through various approaches in different fields, including pharmaceuticals, food, astronomy, meteorology, explosives, and brain science.” (From the official website of Miraikan.)
This exhibition offers visitors the opportunity to train themselves to acquire the Ninja skills. The training course is divided into three sections: “Improve your body”, “Enhance your skills”, and “Perfect your mind”. You will experience throwing shuriken(throwing stars), improve your jumping power, and learn skills such as memory enhancing techniques and special breathing techniques. Upon completing the training, you will receive a Ninja Certificate.
The exhibition will have description panels both in Japanese and English.
