In the unrest of the Sengoku period (15th–17th centuries), mercenaries and spies for hire became active in the Iga Province and the adjacent area around the village of Kōga , [6] and it is from the area's clans that much of our knowledge of the ninja is drawn.

The Hands of Time is the first episode of Season 7: The Hands of Time of LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu , and the sixty-fifth overall in the series.

Master Wu mistakenly tries to single-handedly complete a battle he began decades ago against Acronix, one of the twin Hands of Time. But the arrival of the first Time Blade-a weapon with the power to speed up time-sends the Ninja to the Monastery just in time to rescue their master from certain doom.

At the Temple of Airjitzu, Misako asks Dareth to give her the Samurai X helmet, with Ronin offering to do so. The shockwave then affects the temple, causing Ronin to immediately be on top of Dareth on the ground while Misako is holding the helmet. At the museum, the Ninja exit the building, where they are immediately teleported to the bridge of the Destiny's Bounty 2.0 . Questioning what happened, Kai asks if time just moved forward.
