The Film that made Ninjas legendary!

ISHIKAWA Goemon (ICHIKAWA Raizo), a talented young ninja, becomes ensnared in a twisted scheme to assassinate ODA Nobunaga, an evil warlord bent on ruling feudal Japan with an iron fist. Deceit, treachery, and entire gangs of enemy ninja lurk around every corner as Goemon travels the countryside to complete his task, win back his honor, and save his skin!

The producers enlisted the aid of the last “living Ninja master” as a consultant, so this film contains realistic Ninja techniques, details of Ninja society and the secrets of Ninja houses. A must-see film for real Ninja fans.

Vengeance, thy name is Ninja

Confident that he has destroyed the Iga Ninja, the evil ODA Nobunaga continues his quest to conquer Japan. Meanwhile, ISHIKAWA Goemon (ICHIKAWA Raizo) has settled down with his wife and child, and wishes only to live in peace -- a wish that will not be granted.

As mighty warlords battle and connive, Goemon must once again try to assassinate Nobunaga, in order to save the Bhuddist religious community that has come to mean so much to him. But the path to success is once again a twisted one, full of scheming samurai and nefarious traps!

Good Ninjas Die Many Deaths

When we last saw the intrepid ninja ISHIKAWA Goemon (Raizo Ichikawa), he was about to be boiled alive. But a good ninja is both hard to find, and even harder to kill. With the help of the enigmatic HATTORI Hanzo, Goemon lives to skulk another day, and sets his sights on bringing down the warlord who tried to turn him into soup -- TOYOTOMI Hideyoshi. And as always, in the background, the suble hand of TOKUGAWA Ieyasu is pulling strings as he plots to rule all of Japan!

Battles are fought during the day, but won at night!

TOKUGAWA Ieyasu is the ruler of all Japan. But one last loose thread must be tied up before his domination is complete -- the destruction of the Toyotomi clan, now beseiged in Osaka castle. Ieyasu's ninja are the only ones who can penetrate the fortress, but unfortunately for Ieyasu, KIRIGAKURE Saizo (Ichikawa) and the other Toyotomi ninja can just as easily get out. As armies of samurai maneuver for battle, the fate of the nation will be decided by a desperate struggle in the dark!
