Dealing with camouflage

I've gotten into this game through Rise of the Kage and my buddy and I are really getting into it.
I've chosen Ryu as my primary faction, but off course alls will play Kage and Jung (and have my eyes out on a cult force)

While thus far I have managed to deal with my buddies ninja to a reasonable extend, I feel the camouflage trait is really something to plan for. I find houseguards a huge help with their combination of aware, first strike and push back. Sixth sense allso looks great, but what ways are their to deal with these pesky pyama wearing thugs if those traits are not in my warband.

And, if you feel like it, how do other factions deal with this

I find that camouflage is very dependent on terrain.
I played quite a bit with bakemono who also often have campouflage so I am also quite used to playing with it. 
I find that actively using camouflage is harder than it seems. In most cases I find that hiding 1 person from 1 person is quite easy, but when there are more models around (outnumbering Kage is not that hard), spread out a little bit and it becomes very hard to hide. Most models should be able to see some of the ninjas. I did  find that in the few games against kage I charge way more than I normally would. Since I cannot see a ninja close by but might see one slightly further away.

Thanks. I just played Kage myself and yeah, I noticed it's harder than it looks.

The Kage had me a bit intimidated, but now I played with them I can more easily see their weakneses.

Not only lost the game, but got whiped out. Had some bad rolls from which I recovered, but it was a bit late. Awesome game. My opponent had 2 scenario points at turn 4 so I went a bit Gung-ho to get a morla victory resulting in dead ninjas.
