Private Ninja Training in a Cave in Hidaka

Well known today as a ninja, Mohei was a real person who lived in the old village Kusaka-mura, which is the centre of the modern village of Hidaka-mura. According to the legend, he was a poor peasant who fell in love with the daughter of a rich landowner. The affair was doomed, and while he was walking about desperately looking for a place to die, Mohei came upon the cave called Sarudado, where a fantastic creature called a tengu was pursuing an ascetic lifestyle. Mohei became its disciple. So diligent was he that he learned everything his mentor taught and travelled to the town surrounding Kochi castle, where he did such things as giving rice to the poor.
This activity is in the footsteps of the Ninja Mohei. You will wear a Ninja costume and try training in the cave! To reach the cave, you will ride a bicycle and enjoy the Japanese countryside landscape. After the caving, you will relax with a coffee, local black tea and some sweets or fruits.
