The Ninja Temple

Built like a maze, Myoryu Temple has doors hidden by wall scrolls, hidden staircases and trap doors that look like Buddhist offering boxes. Due to its numerous defenses against intruders, the temple earned the moniker of "Ninja Temple". It is even said that one of the temple's wells has a secret passageway that leads to Kanazawa Castle.
