Classic Japanese Culture, or Ninjas! Ninjas! Ninjas!

A friend recently brought my attention to this:

Passengers dressed in ninja costumes will be given free travel along the Iga Tetsudo line from April 1 to May 6 to mark the city's popular ninja festival.

Man, I wish I was in Japan for that... Anybody, if you are in Japan, along the Iga Tetsudo line, please take pictures and let me know. I really want to see a whole family, grandma and grandpa too, all dressed in the mysterious black garb of the ninja. That would be sugoii.

Well, it's not grandma and grandpa, but here's a nice father/son outing:

We're so there next year.

Totally! Thanks for the pic!

Normally the dark ninja outfits are for escaping into the shadows, so you might think, "Gosh, why the red outfit for the kunoichi?" I'll tell you why: it's so she'll be camouflaged on the fields of blood.

Great blog, Trevor! It's both smart and fun. (No surprise there.) We should definitely hang out sometime. This is me:

Thanks for sharing.


p.s. I couldn't find your poetry! :-(

Hi Renee!

Thanks for the kind words--much appreciated! The poems are sporadically posted throughout the blog...easy to miss.
