Hello guys Im a noob and I have a bugging question.

I understand some myths about the Shinobi, clarified on books by Stephen Turnbull, such as walking over water and "magic" but Once and I dont know where I saw this...I saw a depiction of Shinobi flying strapped on Giant papper kittes.

Do any of you guys know the explanation to this myth?

My second request is...can you guys link me to a site of very old Japanese Drawing depicting battles and the every day routines of the Sengoku times?

I appreciate any help.

Wasn't it Kakinoki Kinsuke?
He was famous thief in Edo period.
There was a myth that he tried to steal golden shachihoko on top of Nagoya castle with the giant kite.
