The Wikipedia is a nice place to look - its the infinite source of KNOWLEDGE!
Hattori Hanzo

Or, check out the Samurai Archives, a database of the feudal eras.

Well Hattori Hanzo was a very famous samurai/ninja of his time so you could look at books made for him. I found more about him when I made a "pilgrimmage" to Japan for half a year and I learned alot. Especially on my ancestors but wikipedia as pointed out has a lot of information.

Hattori Hanzo was the name given to the leader of the Iga Ninja Hattori Family. His real name was Masanari Yasunaga Hattori his father known as Jokannyudo of Iga and was himself a feared Ninja Master. Masanari became Leader of the Hattori Family when he was only 14, he had 3 brothers Yasutoshi, Yasumasa, and the eldest brother was Yasumoto. Masanari was the youngest of them. He was sent to serve as a Kagemusha to Motoyasu Matsudaira who later took the name Ieyasu Matsudaira and then still later took the name Ieyasu Tokugawa becoming Shogun of Japan in 1600. Its believed Hanzo studied Iga Ryu, Hozoin Ryu, and Yagyu Shinkage Ryu thus making him even more deadly then your common variety Ninja.
A good source for information is the Manga series Path of the Assassin by Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima the same guys who did Lone Wolf and Cub.

Hope that helps

Sorry, but wikipedia is not a source of knowledge. It's heavily biased and often shows completely wrong information. You can't take wiki at face value.

I beg to differ, Wikipedia is a source of knowledge, as long as you know how to use it. Like all information, it is only truly correct if confirmed by reliable sources - and it is often not.
Wikipedia can be the greatest source of information anywhere as long as you find the information there first, and then look up a second opinion from a neutral, internationally recognized source.

If there is no guarantee that a piece of info on a wiki is correct, all you have to do is look it up to confirm it. However, it is still a gateway to finding that information in the first place.

Of course you can't take it at face value, but to say it is not a source of knowledge would be superficial, at best.
