Goemon Ishikawa, a talented young ninja, becomes ensnared in a twisted scheme to assassinate Nobunaga Oda, 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.
Considered by many critics to be the best and most realistic films about the ninja, the Shinobi no Mono saga spans the turbulent years of 1573-1615, and tells the story of the ninja who lurked behind the scenes while warlords strived for power. In one of his most famous performances, the iconic Raizo Ichikawa portrays two famous ninja (Goemon Ishikawa and Saizo Kirigakure), each one with his own agenda, each one with a dark past and no certain future.
