Ninja training at the shrine

Ever since I’ve been to Japan I’ve been in love with Japanese/Asian architecture. The trip even made me like Ninjago even more. Knowing this makes it obvious why seeing this creation made me so happy. It’s rare to see Ninjago MOCs that skip the fantastical and just keep to the classical, and this one does it beautifully.

Pagoda Full Scene

The MOC itself was built (and won first place!) for a Ninjago competition hosted by Cactus Brick LUG. It takes cues from Shinto shrines and delivers a stunning scene featuring the ninja. The main piece, of course, is the Pagoda itself. It’s surrounded by the training grounds and a park, complete with a lake, bridge, shrine gate (torii) and even a cherry tree.
