The birhtplace ofr the Ninja, Japanese city of Iga, is currently facing a ninja shortage. They are currently hiring Ninjas and can pay as much as $85,000.
Much of their tourism in Iga is based around the Ninja attraction and the yearly Ninja festival. With population dwindling and less ninja's to work, they are losing money fast.
"Right now in Iga, we are working very hard to promote ninja tourism and get the most economic outcome," Okamoto told Sally Herships of NPR. "For example, we hold this ninja festival between late April to around the beginning of May. During this period visitors and also local people come here. Everybody will be dressed like a ninja and walks around and enjoys themselves — but recently I feel that it's not enough."
It's pays decent too! Ninja's earn between $23 -to $85,000 per year! WHERE DO I SIGN UP!? I'm in!
