Iga vs Koga Shinobi


Iga vs Koka Shinobi

   Shinobi existed throughout Japan but these two villages of Iga and Koka (now called Koga) became the breeding centers for the history's most furious ninja including Hattori Hanz┼Ź, Fujibayashi Nagato, Momochi Sandayu, Fuma Kotaro and Natori Masatake. The reason for this is that the two regions were independent of the shogunate rule and didn't have a shugo (governor appointed by Shogun) to oversee them (if existed then only by name). Hence in these villages, respective clans formed alliance to have free rein and appoint their own leader by mutual consultation. Thus they were independent to form their own armies and strong fortresses as per way they wished.
