Capability of Ever-changing Appearance

Fully Committing to a Role Some ninjas served as low-ranking warriors, farmers, and sometimes even members of vigilante groups, and when they were engaged in public activities, the ninjas had a camouflage technique called “shichihode,” in which they disguised themselves as monks, peddlers, and street performers. For example, if pretending to be a monk, they wore the scent of incense and chanted sutras. If disguised as a “medicine seller,” they wore the scent of Japanese medicines, and as a draper, they wore the scent of kimono dyes. They also acquired knowledge of products and learned how to behave for each role. What an effort they must have put in! The reasons for going so far to disguise themselves were for these important missions: 1) to […]

Strategy is the Best Way to Minimize Warfare

“A superior ninja (Jyonin) is a man with no sound, no smell, no praise for his wisdom, no fame for his valor, whose deeds are like the creation of heaven and earth. (Bansenshukai)” A ninja’s mission was primarily about gaining useful information to avoid unnecessary battles. Another duty was to increase the odds of survival, such as stealthily saving the lives of warlords and other influential or reducing the scale of warfare. Their work helped to prevent the loss of troops and provisions and minimized the chaos in the battlefield during times of prolonged warfare.   Sun Tzu said, “One hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the best of goodness.” (Meaning, even if you fight a hundred times and win a hundred times, […]

The Art of Interchanging Fiction and Reality

No hesitation, be confident. The fiction-reality conversion technique is a tactic that skillfully interchanges fiction and reality (bluffing and honesty) to gain an advantage in a confrontation or diplomatic situation. It’s a strategy that takes advantage of an individual’s psychology, such as making something appear to be there when it is not or acting confidently even when feeling unsure. There are two sides to every coin. No matter how perfect, excellent, or strong an opponent may appear to be, there is always a weakness hiding under the surface. With careful observation, you will be able to spot and exploit a rival’s emotional weak points to gain control of the situation. Ninjas used this technique of shifting fiction and reality, such as acting confident even if […]

Thoughts expressed by the hand

Toin =” sword seal” is a body language to show non-combat. The two fingers of the right hand represent the sword, and the two fingers of the left hand represent the sheath. By tucking the sword into the scabbard, the pose represents “No need for unnecessary conflict. “(NINJA FOREST’s interpretation) If you are tired of fighting or feeling agitated in your daily life, why don’t you make a sword seal? If you exhale and raise the corners of your mouth a little, your mind will feel lighter and more relaxed. I hope this pose will be a small prayer for peace, and I will send it out from this site!   I do this softly.

The same commandments today as in the past.

The Three Diseases of the Ninja / Fear, Insult, and Overthinking The ninja, who had to perform missions such as gathering information while fighting against danger and anxiety, always warned themselves not to fall into these three diseases. Don’t be scared, don’t take things lightly, don’t knock over too many stone bridges. Overthinking is something that smart people tend to fall into. And these apply not only to ninja work, but also to corona preparation, exams, work, life… everything. It’s easy to say, but excessive fear and worry can stop you from thinking and acting in a healthy way, and if you take others lightly, they can catch you off guard. When it comes down to it, don’t get caught in a circular spiral, but […]
