 In Odawara, Hojo subjugates Odawara late in the 15th century and is land which became the beginning of the age of civil strife. We followed afterwards until the late 16th century and, meanwhile, independent area nation which power called "war-torn country daimyo" ruled over in the whole land of Japan stood side by side a lot and, for the age of civil strife, competed for hegemony in military power.

 Hojo governed for 5s approximately 100 years and Odawara and the power became huge so as to conquer Kanto, but we were surrounded by the Allied Forces on the Hideyoshi Toyotomi side who had world unification close at hand finally and were defeated. For the age of civil strife when we followed for a long time at the moment, we closed curtain in place of Odawara.

When we drive 2 or 3 degrees of the beginning into camp of Takeda carrying Jack of straw to horse and thought whether it is Jack of straw again, we hang night assault in the truth. When we steal horse of enemy, we stick to flank of horse and let you drive fast in state that person is not on the horse. We make plunder and set fire to many places and we are lost in enemy and raise kachidoki (time) and confuse armor, weapon, food catch-as-catch-can.
We are treated like this, and the Takeda forces do internal squabble at last without sleeping calmly at night, and the master and vassal fight, and it is said that child came to take neck of parent.

Person out of office style art of concealment and espionage (yanin) is art of concealment and espionage ascetic practice that utilized natural rich outdoor environment.

Across school, we investigate realistic art of concealment and espionage to be helpful in the modern society and touch "heart of the sum" to flow through the root and, as well as the skill, feed.


Letter of "nin" writes that we measure blade injuring person for heart at the same time to measure heart to fade with blade. In other words, art of concealment and espionage stops useless fight not operation for merely fight and it is better and thinks that it is operation to live.


Program of yanin returns naturally and is not particular about existing concept by reminding of essential sensitivity and aims at coming to be able to see the world in more neutral viewpoint.
