a temple of Shugendo
Built in 1616 as a temple of Shugendo religion, Matsumoto-in remains as the only temple for Shugendo prayer and worship in Iga to this day. Kuji-ho, a training method used in Shugendo, is also adopted in ninja techniques, inferring that Shinobi (ninja) was established under the influence of Shugendo.
