Japan Hires Ninjas To Boost Tourism

Ninjas!

Ninjas!

In what must have made for one of the best want ads ever, the Aichi prefecture, located in Japan’s central Honshu Island recently looked to hire six ninjas to work in their developing “warrior tourism” industry.

It’s unclear if these ninjas ever got hired, because if they were doing their job right you’d never see them and would therefore never know.

Everyone knows ninjas are notoriously difficult to buy for.

Their throwing stars need to be the right weight, their footwear needs to be that perfect combination of utilitarian and cool, their swords need to have a certain taper…

It’s a good thing Sarah has these secretive people covered as she wrote up a very related gift guide over at Asian World Of Martial Arts.

Ninjas, Chuck Norris And Cannon Films

When the Toronto International Film Festival was on Sarah had the chance to speak with Mark Hartley, the man behind the documentary film, Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films.

If “Cannon Films” doesn’t ring a bell, the company’s imprint on pop culture certainly does. They’re the people who brought Chuck Norris, breakdancing movies, ninjas and Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 to the masses a few decades ago.
