During the Warring States Period, the struggle for absolute supre-macy stood between
two mighty warlords, Takeda Shingen, ruler of Shinano and Kai provinces and Oda
Nobunaga, ruler of Owari province.
In an attempt to finish off his rival, Takeda sends
his master ninja Chidoken to assassinate Oda Nobunaga. Three Iga ninja loyal to
Nobunaga learn about the assassination plot and set out to intercept Chidoken. This is
another amazing Toei ninja movie, of the same caliber as "Seventeen Ninja" and "Ninja
Hunt", a must have for any fan of old-school ninja flix.
