Kyoto Eigamura Ninja Show

  Oct 3rd, 2009

On a visit to Kyoto in the Summer I went to Eiga Mura and saw the Ninja Show. The show was good entertainment. I took these shots with my Nikon D700 with no flash. The blue and red lighting on the background make some good contrasts for the photos.

The Ninja show is set to start. Seats please

Looks like he is not happy about something. Did we catch him on a bad hair day?

Plenty of movement on stage. Would have been nice to try a faster lens and shoot a clearer picture

Kyoto Eigamura was a really great place to visit and the Ninja Show good entertainment. I have more photos from the main Eigamura set which I will post later as well. If you are taking a trip to Kyoto and want to see old style Japanese places in a movie setting then this is the place to go. Plan to be there all day as there is lots to do, especially if you decide to get dressed up in Kimono or Ninja outfits.

I went there in October…great show!
Did the lead baddie come down into the audience about 15 minutes into it and start talking to the audience when you were there?
Did it for us…his voice changed, was telling jokes, scaring kids then it was as if he remembered what he was supposed to be doing and then he jumped back on the stage to fight the female actor!!

Really funny stuff!

Did you see the Ninjas Vs Power Rangers show as well? Now that was strange!!

Loved the Godzilla model as well!

Tristan says:

Thanks! Nothing compared to yours though (I didnt travel with my good camera as I was too scared to take it! Learnt that that was a stupid decision on my behalf)

That was quite the stage act they put on. All the drama, and action you could ask for. Great photo shoot. The colors used for this preformance are quite the deciding factor,the red of the costume vs the blue background. And it loos like he’s having a bad hair day, lol maybe that led to his defeat. I’ve also wondered way the dramaic wait, is that all part of the culture or just for show?
