Did you know there are still real NINJAS? I mean, these days they mostly just perform shows for tourists in Japan, but still, ninjas are still around.
Unfortunately, though, there’s a problem. LOTS of tourists want to see those shows, but Japan is suffering from a serious NINJA SHORTAGE.
Apparently it takes a ton of training to become one, in everything from acrobatics to weapons combat . . . and since the pay isn’t that great, there’s not a lot of interest. (Independent)
