MONOMI – Shinobi Hand Torch

MONOMI – Shinobi Hand Torch
Photo above: Anshu with a “Monomi” or ninja scouting hand torch.

When on a night mission within a residence or building, the Shinobi had a small hand torch that they used to be able to see within or to see into. This would help aid in “stealing in”. It was small, easily concealable and just as easy to put out in case they felt they were seen.

Split a cedar board to get a piece of 4 or 5 Sun (12 or 15 cm). Apply a little sulphur on the tip and hold it out. This is called Monomi Scouting Torch and used by the shinobi to look inside a window or a knothole.

Information comes the Shinobi sections of the Gunpo Jiyoshu Scrolls; by Ogasawara Saku’un Katsuzo (1612)

If you are interested in buying this book, this translation is found in the book “true ninja traditions” here:​iden-True-Ninja-Traditions​-Scroll/dp/1604818301/ref=​sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1310733​316&sr=8-1

The lesson today comes from my own personal collection and study of these documents. I hope that this helps with all of your training! Take Care, Be Safe and Good luck in your Journey of Budo!
