A ninja was a covert agent in feudal Japan who engaged in espionage, sabotage, infiltration, assassination and guerrilla warfare on a mercenary basis. Their methods were, irregular, and as a result they were considered “beneath” the samurai ruling class, whose strict rules of honor and regimented style combat were in direct contrast to the ninja. Over time, however, modern warfare has come around to the ninja’s way of thinking, and a resurgence in popularity for ninja has resulted.
You can now enjoy the fruits of this interest, by experiencing a live action ninja show. See ninja battle it out in “powerful fights” such as “Ninja VS Sanada Yukimura” and “Hattori Hanzo VS Ninja.” Not sure how well that second one is going to go for the ninja… Hattori Hanzo is the most famous warriors in all of Japanese History!
On top of all the flying kicks and sword flashes, you will also be treated to traditional Japanese musical instruments and “Courtesans.” I assume the courtesans will be be playing said instruments, but it actually doesn’t specify that… maybe the ninja play them for the courtesans in a turn about designed to further shove that thumb in the eyes of those stick in the mud samurai!
