To attract more tourism, Japan is all set with creative ideas like turning to hooded samurai era acrobatic spies who are better known as ninjas. The Japan Ninja Council said this Wednesday that it’s all set to train people in ninjutsu-ninja techniques and eventually building a ninja museum by 2018 in the city of Tokyo.
To quote Jinichi Kawakami who is better known as the last ninja and a master of Koga ninja school, ‘’ the art of ninja is made up of various elements, such as combat, survival techniques and astronomy. We hope this will appeal to people all over the world.”
Created in 2015, this council has developed an official logo for different certified products and movies in order to care for the ninja business with an aim to promote ninja culture worldwide. Hiroshi Mizohata, council vice president, who heads the Osaka Convention & Tourism Bureau emphasized that ninja fun is great for business and government’s cool Japan campaign includes a lot of it in terms of animation, video games, food and movies leading to 2020 Tokyo Olympic.
A ninja-inspired martial-arts demonstration was organized by the council where a muscular actor wore rope to defend against an attacker, and a woman dressed in an attractive ninja outfit did flips to recorded rock music.
