Ninja will help increase tourism in Japan ahead of the 2019 Rugby World Cup and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Ninja are a symbol of Japan. They are great at fighting and can run across rooftops very fast. Several ninja showed their skills this week when they "sneaked" into the Prime Minister's office. The Prime Minister joked with the ninja. He said: "Even though you're all wearing...bright colors, you were still able to slip through the tight security."
A ninja was a spy and fighter. They first appeared in 15th-century Japan. They were skilled in killing, fighting, destroying things and spying. They helped warlords win land and power. In the 19th century, artists and writers gave ninja great abilities, like being invisible, walking on water and being able to control fire. Today we can see ninja everywhere. They are in movies, cartoons, comics, games and manga.
