This small city halfway between Nagoya and Nara has some interesting claims to fame. Noted haiku poet Matsuo Basho was born here in the 1640s, and it was home to one of Japan's leading ninja schools. Some locals even suggest Basho was himself a ninja. Iga Ueno is accessible from Nagoya, Kyoto, Nara, and Osaka on JR lines.
