The Iga Ueno Ninja Festival is the annual five-week ninja-themed festival in the Japanese city of Iga (in the former province of Iga), from April 1 to May 6. Almost 30,000 ninja fans travel to Iga (pop. 100,000) for ninja-inspired performances, competitions, and opportunities to practice ninja skills, organized to promote the city. During the festival, passengers on Iga train lines dressed in ninja costumes are given free rides.
