Ninja Village / Iga-Ueno / Koyasan

Our travels through Japan took us sightseeing at the The Hakuhojo White Phoenix Castle, often referred to as the "ninja castle" in Iga-Ueno City, Mie Prefecture. To the left are some of the gang and to the right and below some views of the castle.

The town thrives on a ninja theme and you can see "plays" featurning pink-gi-clad young women all day long. The photo to the left was scanned from an Iga-Ueno shopping bag I brought home with me. To the right is calligraphy from, I *think*, the White Phoenix castle though it might be from a shrine or temple in the town. I'm trying to get it identified. My notes on it just said "Iga" which didn't tell me much more than the town.
