In the Naruto series, ninjutsu refers to the mystical arts of the shinobi, or ninja, characters within the fictional world created by Masashi Kishimoto. It encompasses a wide range of techniques, including elemental manipulation, illusions, summoning creatures, and various forms of combat techniques. Each ninja character in the Naruto universe typically specializes in specific types of ninjutsu based on their unique abilities, elemental affinities, and training.
Special Projection Mapping Show on Ninjutsu
The first one, “Hokage Rock Ninjutsu Festival”, is a projection mapping onto the huge 11-meter high “Hokage Rock” with beautiful light and music. In the show, Naruto and his friends proudly show off their Ninjutsu that you saw in the anime film/books; Kakashi’s “Kaminari giri (Lightening Blade)”, Sasuke’s “Katon Goukakyu no Jutsu (Fire Style – Fireball Jutsu)” and more.
